Reliable Financial Assumptions

Financial modelling involves taking certain assumptions around the number of units sold in a month, the year-on-year growth, average salaries paid to employees, marketing spends etc. A good financial model will have provisions to enter these inputs. A great financial model is formed off the back of reliable research and assumptions taken based on key players and similar competitors in the industry. And we deliver nothing but the best
