January 19, 2010
, , , , , , ,

Last weekend we had a brilliant session on creating a model for takeover pricing. Around 100 people from across the world attended the session and discussed various aspects of financial modeling. There were some confusion regarding the timing of the webinar, but as indicated in the blog announcement regarding the Financial Modeling for Takeover in Excel blog, we had a timing of 13.00 Hrs GMT. This had to be converted to your own timings and we had used the service of, which does provide a good interface.

We have also started a series of articles on Excel Modeling for Value @ Risk (VaR). VaR is considered by far the most important aspect of risk management and we thought that it would be very helpful for our readers/ students to understand how to build models for VaR ground up. You can start learning the basic maths behind VaR Modeling by clicking on the blog.
