Financial Modeling Books

5.36K viewsGeneral Discussion

Hi all,
I think building financial models is both an art and a tecnique; my job is a passion and I need to improve my skills ever and ever.

Is here anyone who can suggest me some books on Financial Modeling/Corporate Finance that he considered useful also
with Quantrix (and not only for Excel ;-)?



Hi Carlo,

I knew that I still had some interesting books on my Amazon wish list… 😉
I just checked them again and by doing this I followed additionaly the recommendations given by Amazon. The result is the compiled list below. I think two or three of them I made a recommendation because I think they might be very helpful (have a look for the annotations).

Annotation to the last book: [i:88odrq4g]Maybe quite a bit out of fashion, politically incorrect and cyncal at the moment 😉 but certainly interesting.[/i:88odrq4g][/color][/*:m:88odrq4g]

[color=”red”]Annotion: This seems to have no direct relation to practical business modeling by showing how it it is done in Excel, but it gives you certainly some useful theoretical insights in some specialities of business modeling in the truest sense of the word. Modeling is more than technicalities and the author seems to describe this.[/color][/*:m:88odrq4g]
