What Is Advanced Financial Modeling?

There are three main types of advanced financial modeling: (1) a detailed operating model, (2) a leveraged buyout (LBO) model, and (3) a merger & acquisition (M&A) model. Each of the three types comes with its own unique challenges and complexities. With operating models, they’re the drivers of the business; with LBO models, they’re the debt finance and capital structure; and with M&A models, they’re the combination of the businesses.
