A straightforward, how-to guide to the fundamentals of finance modeling

"This book is a complete, all-in-one toolkit for structured finance modeling with Excel VBA, written by a veteran of a leading Wall Street investment bank who is also a VBA instructor. Whether you are new to structured finance or a seasoned professional, you will find here all you need to model even the most complex structured finance transactions. The book and accompanying web site provide the theory, the organization, and the code itself that take you step-by-step through the entire process, right up to the tasks market participants are most focused on today: valuation and monitoring. In addition to the nuts and bolts, you will find explanations and insights that only an experienced structured finance banker can provide. This book is the definitive resource that will raise you above the competition in modeling structured finance transactions."
—Carol Childers, Director, Global Markets, Citigroup

"Learning VBA is a daunting undertaking, add to that the challenge and complexity of structured cash flows, and the task can become overwhelming. This book provides a great step-by-step approach to overcoming this hurdle. It is extremely easy to read and offers a deliverables checklist for each chapter to ensure all concepts have been understood before moving on. The reader comes away with not only a sense of the utility and flexibility of VBA but also a sense of the factors that play into structuring cash flows. Concepts that are extremely pertinent in today's market environment include the performance of collateral, pricing of securities, and impact of the economic environment on the cash flows available to investors and all interested parties."
—Kimberly Brown, Analyst, Commercial Real Estate, Citigroup

"Bill is extraordinarily methodical in real life, with a very wide view of life. This shows in his book. Rather than rush through the ins and outs of code, he emphasizes what is needed, why it is needed, and how it is used. This makes the book much more than just a book on financial models, and closer to a book on how to be a financial professional."
—Omar Haneff, Vice President, Proteus Technologies LLC
