Incorporating discounted cashflows (DCFs) into financial models is by far the most common method of financial modelling for valuation purposes. Despite its popularity, this method can often harbour inaccuracies and the assumptions and results can be misinterpreted and prone to error. Use of templates and error checks can improve the robustness as well as the time taken to build these models. Once the model has been built, communicating the results to operational staff can also pose a challenge for financial model builders.
Join us to hear from research analyst and financial modeller, Fiona Bachmann present agriculture case studies of building DCF models for capital expenditure and new business projects, and then presenting and communicating the results of the financial model to a less financially literate audience.
