Financial Arena is one of the first training providers globally that became a FAST Modeling Standard accredited provider. Our firm offers accredited seminars for individuals that want to get the FAST Standard Level 1 Certification and demonstrate their competence in financial models using the FAST Standard.
Studies have found that up to 90% of spreadsheets contain errors and some of them can be quite critical costing money, time and damage to a firm’s reputation. FAST Standard is an industry-recognized standard, also recognized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
As of January 2016, our firm is one of the first globally to become a FAST accredited provider, as we have gone through a formal accreditation process with the FAST Standard Organisation (“FSO”).
We believe that financial modeling skills require a structured approach and it is not just about good Excel knowledge. Any serious modeller, no matter the industry he is involved, needs to be able to design and construct a solid spreadsheet model by following a standardised, structured approach. Top managers seek to get useful insights and make key decisions based on a properly created model.
