French Real Estate Analyst

Financial Modelling in Excel with French Leases

Delegates will learn to build financial models in Excel and create multi-let cash flows, add funding structures, perform sensitivity analysis and scenario analysis and ensure that Excel is giving the correct IRR!

Uniquely this course provides instruction on how to plan and develop income functions arising under French lease contracts.

Any delegate regardless of their level of understanding, will attain advanced skills by the end of this course, including a much deeper understanding of how property values are estimated and how decisions based on property models are actually made. The exceptional and consistent delegate feedback we regularly receive has ensured that the world’s largest property companies run the Analyst course year after year.

 

Who will benefit from this course?

This is an intensive and advanced course which will benefit anyone who needs to understand and/or build real-estate models. It is suitable for delegates with a similar level of expertise and the course can be taught at any level. Bayfield Training’s pioneering technique ensures the delivery of quality financial modelling training and is reflected in the excellent feedback we have received from our delegates.
