Organisation Description

The F1F9 team have been building financial models since 1999. We have built them for a variety of sectors and for many different purposes. From Project Finance, Oil and Gas, to Enterprise Reporting models – dealing with the modelling spectrum from Valuation, Forecasting, Funding through to Operational models.

In addition to building models we also provide training across various levels and subjects. Our training can be taken online, in-house or as part of our public schedule.

We also offer support and review of your models – this ongoing activity provides our customers with the security and peace of mind that we fully understand their model and are always ready to help update, amend and check their models.

CPD Courses and Workshops Available

  • VBA- What the FAST Modeller needs to know

    Online Course | F1F9

    F1F9

    FAST modelling uses macros and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) as a last resort as VBA lacks transparency. But the FAST modeller needs to have a working knowledge of VBA as macros sometimes have a role to play. There is lots of information available for free on the internet but little of it is focused on the FAST modeller. This introductory course covers the design and construction of two commonly used macros

  • Encyclopaedia of FAST Modelling

    Encyclopaedia of FAST Modelling is an online and ever-expanding bank of financial modelling video and Excel resources. It is designed for professionals to draw on as they build their reputation as financial modellers who have adopted a standardised approach to their work. It contains many videos from other F1F9 courses that have an emphasis on what Excel can do for you – including the evaluation of more complex functions that we use in building financial models based on the FAST Standard

  • Financial Statement Modelling

    Online Course | F1F9

    F1F9

    Financial Statement Modelling This practical and highly engaging course teaches the core financial model design and construction techniques that every modeller should know. You will learn to apply good design and modelling techniques rigorously as you work through a business acquisition case study. Calculations required to forecast the three primary financial statements (income; balance sheet; and cash flow) are put together step-by-step and the target company’s equity valuation is derived from the present value of forecast dividends. The course also covers debt financing; inflation / escalation / indexation; depreciation and taxation 11-12 September 2018 and 13-14 November 2018. TBC. TBC.

    This course is designed for people who have done our free 31 days course and want to master a rigorous structured and transparent approach to modelling in Excel using the FAST Standard. It will help you take what you have learned already consolidate that learning make connections between individual clauses in the FAST Standard and apply your knowledge to practical modelling challenges. Course content includes additional videos and model build assignments that will help you assess your progress. The course is also designed to help people preparing to take the FAST Standard Organisation’s Level 1 Certificate.

  • Project Finance Modelling

    Online Course | F1F9

    F1F9

    Project Finance Modelling This practical and hands-on course focuses on applying general business and non-recourse finance theory to cash flows forecast to arise from greenfield projects and special purpose vehicles (“SPVs”). You will also build a model that evaluates equity returns and may be used to negotiate and secure non-recourse debt through a process of model optimisation. Time is also spent on conceptual modelling and analysis of results. You can expect to build a model that is flexible; appropriate; structured and transparent. Advanced topics include modelling reserve accounts and shareholder loans. 13 – 14 September 2018 and 15 -16 November 2018.TBC. TBC (Central London).
