Models are at the heart of all business decisions
Whether you're looking to raise finance, buy or sell a business, assess strategic options, or just plan for the future, you're going to need a forecast. This is likely to come from a financial model.
A good model creates a picture of the future in a credible and transparent way, with flexible assumptions that can be understood and easily changed to gain insight into the opportunities and risks facing your business.
We help you understand the impact of your decisions before you make them
You'll get bespoke financial models in Microsoft Excel that are flexible, robust, transparent, and credible. Each model we produce is developed from scratch using proven methodologies, allowing us to tailor a solution that really meets your needs. Our user-friendly models are pivotal in creating insight into business risks, evaluating options and driving better decision-making.
We'll work alongside you throughout the modelling process to ensure that you understand and own a tool that will be of lasting value to your business. Our approach is pragmatic, combining specialist Excel modelling skills with deep commercial insight and understanding.

“The Grant Thornton team showed great commitment and resourcefulness in developing our new real estate finance cash flow model. The model is now in full service, being put through its paces daily and receiving good feedback from its users.”
- Sara Ensor BSc MRICS, Head of Investment and Development Analysis, Real Estate PM, NatWest Group
“The Grant Thornton team constructed a very clearly laid out integrated model that really assisted in conversations with shareholders and lenders, and can also be utilised by the business on an ongoing basis. It was developed in consultation with us to ensure the key drivers and assumptions were transparent and outputs well-presented. It was done to a challenging timetable and the hard work and professionalism of the team was very much appreciated. The model proved a significant factor in getting stakeholders to understand and support our plans.”
