As a founder of a leading investment banking, private equity and hedge fund recruiting business, and as the former head of the analyst program at Morgan Stanley, I know the importance of demonstrated proficiency in financial modeling and valuation both during the hiring process and on the job. Finally, there exists a book that actually goes through the model building and valuation process in complete detail with methodologies critical to both budding analysts and experienced professionals."
--Eleni Henkel, Founder and Partner at Henkel Search Partners; former Managing Director and Global Head of Morgan Stanley's Analyst and Associate Programs
"Financial Modeling and Valuation offers an extensive overview of key fundamentals of investment banking, private equity, and M&A analysis. It will be of interest to students and discerning investors alike."
--Professor Charles H. McGill, NYU Stern School of Business; Advisor with several leading private equity firms
"I thoroughly endorse this financial 'model' work of art! Financial modeling and valuation methods are an art form of comparable analysis with a wide range of variables that can be considered quite subjective in terms of which method should be utilized. To become and stay informed, these mentioned models or tools can identify the proper program of analysis for 'rationalizing' a potential investment."
--Henry W. McCusker, Analyst, Journalist, and Publisher; Founder and Director of Research, Scimitar Equity
"This book contains all the basic concepts required to successfully apply for, and get a head start on, a career on Wall Street, whether as a sell-side analyst, an investment banker, or a private equity specialist. I especially value the focus on Walmart, because this company touches on so many sectors and trends in today's business world, from retailing to logistics to real estate."
--Julio Marquez, Partner, Wyndham Global Partners
