Financial models are necessary to evaluate a project’s economics, negotiations among stakeholders, and a crucial component of the final documentation.

While the development and analysis of project finance models are often delegated to external financial advisors, it is crucial for certain selected officials involved in a transaction not only to have an understanding of how financial models work but also to have the capability to manipulate the model.
