Do you know your EBITDA from your Margins?
These days it’s more important than ever to be able to analyse and interpret financial information. You’re not an accountant, so nobody is expecting you to be able to pull together a complete set of financial statements, but you may struggle to make sound management decisions if you don’t understand the financial consequences of them.
Accounting jargon can be baffling for the uninitiated: ebitda, free cash flow, margins, gearing – a good understanding of these terms will undoubtedly help you to perform your job to the best of your abilities. You need to be able to engage in meaningful discussions with colleagues, counterparties, and most importantly your clients, and without the ability to review and interpret financial information this can be nigh on impossible.
BPP’s suite of Financial Analysis training courses will teach you initially the accounting basics: income statement, cash flow statement and statement of financial position – What are they? Where do the numbers come from? How do they relate to each other? And which one to look at for the answers to particular questions. The focus then shifts to techniques and tips on how to best read, review and analyse the financial statements. There are numerous key metrics, ratios and other key performance indicators to help assess the financial performance and position of a business, and these are covered in detail.
