The third edition of this standard text retains the popular "cookbook" features of earlier editions and includes expanded and new coverage of such topics as bank valuation, the Black-Litterman portfolio selection model, Monte Carlo pricing methods, array function, and getting information from the Internet with VBA.Too often, finance courses stop short of making a connection between textbook finance and the problems of real-world business. "Financial Modeling" bridges this gap between theory and practice by providing a nuts-and-bolts guide to solving common financial models with spreadsheets. Simon Benninga takes the reader step by step through each model, showing how it can be solved using Microsoft Excel.The long-awaited third edition of this standard text maintains the "cookbook" features and Excel dependence that have made the first and second editions so popular. It also offers significant new material, with new chapters covering such topics as bank valuation, the Black-Litterman approach to portfolio optimization, Monte Carlo methods and their applications to option pricing, and using array functions and formulas. Other chapters, including those on basic financial calculations, portfolio models, calculating the variance-covariance matrix, and generating random numbers, have been revised, with many offering substantially new and improved material. Other areas covered include financial statement modeling, leasing, standard portfolio problems, value at risk (VaR), real options, duration and immunization, and term structure modeling.Technical chapters treat such topics as data tables, matrices, the Gauss-Sidel method, and tips for using Excel. The last section of the text covers the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) techniques needed for the book. The accompanying CD contains Excel worksheets and solutions to end-of-chapter exercises.

It is comprehensive, lucid, and a highly useful resource in every financial modeler's toolkit."--Richard W. Roll, Professor of Management, and Japan Alumni Chair in International Finance "I've learned a great deal from the first two editions of Simon Benninga's Financial Modeling, and the Third Edition offers both new topics and updated coverage of topics from earlier editions. The book gives clear, well-illustrated instructions for using Excel software to solve finance problems, ranging from basic to highly sophisticated, in both corporate finance and investments. The many excellent examples draw on actual company data, and the book gives useful tips on obtaining current data from the internet. Financial Modeling is an outstanding resource for finance professionals, instructors and students. As with earlier editions, I plan to keep my copy close at hand."--Robert A. Taggart, Professor of Finance, Carroll School of Management, Boston College -- Robert Taggert "The new edition of Simon Benninga's Financial Modeling is a comprehensive and effective learning-by-doing tool in motivating users and making easily accessible the concepts of modern corporate finance, investments, and derivatives.

Reviews

For the 2nd Edition: "Benninga has a clear writing style and uses numerous illustrations, which make this book one of the best texts on using Excel for finance that I've seen." Ed McCarthy Ticker Magazine For the 2nd Edition: "The author describes this as a 'cookbook' and that is a good analogy... Its breadth is extensive, covering simple present valuing and cost of capital... to the likes of real options and early exercise of American-style options... A worthwhile acquisition."
