Book Description

Finance is Excel! This book takes you straight into the fascinating world of Excel, the powerful tool for number crunching. In a clear cut language it amalgamates financial theory with Excel providing you with the skills you need to build financial models for private or professional use. A comprehensive knowledge of modeling in Excel is becoming increasingly important in a competitive labour market.

The chapters in part one start with the most basic Excel topics such as cell addresses, workbooks, basic formulas, etc. These chapters get more advanced through part one, and takes you in the end to topics such as array formulas, data tables, pivot tables, etc.  The other parts of the book discusses a variety of subjects such as net present value, internal rate of return, risk, portfolio theory, CAPM, VaR, project valuation, asset valuation, firm valuation, loan, leasing, stocks, bonds, options, simulation, sensitivity analysis, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fills a gap 8 May 2014
Many standard finance books are aimed at an academic audience, and there is of course nothing is wrong with that. But such books may not be all that useful in practical applications. Worse, some texts are pretty technical and tempting to be shelved under the label "will-read-when-have-more-time."
The same can be said about the thick-as-a-brick excel/VBA "bibles" (of which I have quite a few laying about the attic).
Finance practioneers, often looking to build financial spreadsheet models, in my experience don't have all that much material to choose from, at least not in one volume.
This book is one of the more practical of the lot, combining basic finance theory with excel/VBA; a strong command of which is an absolute must for finance and economics practioneers. This text is just on the money in this respect.

The book is more a reference book rather than a text book. The finance content is for the most part basic and introductory (and hence easy to understand -and perhaps even applicable for home use?) Professionals and advanced students who thirst for more "rigour" must look elsewhere. Nevertheless, practical excel application of advanced topics such as the Black-Scholes option model or Monte Carlo simulation is likely to enhance understanding and may also serve as building blocks for further development, armed with new-found excel insights. I recommend this book.

I've just finished working through the entire book and all the examples and questions.

I've done the CFA, so all of the concepts presented in the book were already familiar to me. However, I've not worked in all asset classes, so the book provided a very interest bridge between theory and putting the theory to practice. Okay... not all the way to the point of you being in an investment firm, but close. Rather than list all topics covered (which would just repeat the table of contents) let me just say which areas of the book were highlights:

1) The section on risk and portfolio optimisation was good. It builds you to the point of determining a market portfolio from a basket of stocks and charting the market portfolio.

(There is a brief bit of material on VAR. As a value investor I think it interesting to see the theory applied, even if you think it a dangerous concept. At least you can see what others are doing) - Sorry, I digress

2) There is a particularly good section on binomial and Black-Scholes option valuation with lots of worked examples and problems. This was really worthwhile as the theory I had learned left me far away from assessing some put options I have been thinking of buying recently. I now had the toolkit to assess the prices offered in the market and to act. There is a good initial discussion on concepts like the time value of an option, but the analysis stops short of a full analysis of the the 'greeks".

3) There is a good starting guide to programming in VBA. Again, examples are there which help to build you up to a level where you can start to put concepts to practice.

4) The bond section was fairly good too.
