Financial Modelling


The Financial Model sits at the centre of the Investment Analysis, Business Case, or Feasibility Study. It drives data requirements, and it presents the quantitative results of the analysis.


The process of planning a Financial Model commences with planning what data will be needed to build it, and what information is required from it. The data needs to shape the entire process of developing a Business Case.


We have led and prepared many investment grade Financial Models, typically presented to boards considering investments, or to government in support of funding requests or policy reform. We are accredited by Victoria’s Department of Treasury and Finance under the category Specialised Financial Modelling on its Whole of Government Panel of Commercial Advisors, one of few firms to be so accredited.

  • Hawthorn Football Club Kennedy Community Centre

    Financial Modelling

    Hawthorn Football Club planned to develop an elite sports training centre, Club headquarters, community sports centre, and other facilities on a site in Dingley Village. The Club anticipated funding support from each level of Government and from a range of other sources, and needed to develop more a detailed understanding about its options and opportunities, particularly regarding its financial exposure. 

    The Club engaged Biruu to help address these questions. Biruu developed a complex cashflow model addressing capital inflows from the various funding sources (incorporating debt) and outflows in the form of a staged development and operating costs.

    The Club went on to use Biruu’s model as a tool for informing Board decisions on the proposed investment.
