Financial models: Design with third-party empathy

Creating a financial model is a fundamental skill of a forensic accountant and expert witness, yet a common problem with financial models is that they are not created with the end user in mind.

At Axiom we recognise that the financial models we create are often prepared in the context of litigation, meaning that they are likely to be reviewed by other forensic accountants, lawyers and potentially a judge.

We consider each of these parties to be potential end users of our financial models and, in light of this, endeavour to design and structure financial models so the workings, assumptions and results can be easily understood as a standalone document.
