"Financial Modeling" is now the standard text for explaining the implementation of financial models in Excel. This long-awaited fourth edition maintains the "cookbook" features and Excel dependence that have made the previous editions so popular. As in previous editions, basic and advanced models in the areas of corporate finance, portfolio management, options, and bonds are explained with detailed Excel spreadsheets. Sections on technical aspects of Excel and on the use of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) round out the book to make "Financial Modeling" a complete guide for the financial modeler. The new edition of "Financial Modeling" includes a number of innovations. A new section explains the principles of Monte Carlo methods and their application to portfolio management and exotic option valuation. A new chapter discusses term structure modeling, with special emphasis on the Nelson-Siegel model. The discussion of corporate valuation using pro forma models has been rounded out with the introduction of a new, simple model for corporate valuation based on accounting data and a minimal number of valuation parameters. Praise for earlier editions ""Financial Modeling" belongs on the desk of every finance professional. Its no-nonsense, hands-on approach makes it an indispensable tool." -- Hal R. Varian, Dean, School of Information Management and Systems, University of California, Berkeley " "Financial Modeling" is highly recommended to readers who are interested in an introduction to basic, traditional approaches to financial modeling and analysis, as well as to those who want to learn more about applying spreadsheet software to financial analysis." -- Edward Weiss, "Journal of Computational Intelligence in Finance" "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"
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Very Good. A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This textbook aims to bridge a gap between theory and practice in financial courses 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. In this sense, this is a finance "cookbook", providing recipes with lists of ingredients and instructions. Areas covered include the computation of corporate finance problems, standard portfolio problems, option pricing and applications, and duration and immunization. The author includes a set of chapters dealing with advanced techniques, including random number generation, matrix manipulation, and the Gauss-Seidel method. Although the reader should know enough about Excel to set up a simple spreadsheet, the author explains advanced Excel techniques such as functions, macros, the use of data tables, and VBA programming. The book comes with a disk containing Excel worksheets and solutions to end-of-chapter exercises.
