The model follows good practice financial modeling principles and includes instructions, line item explanations, checks, and input validations.
The key outputs include:
– Projected Cash flow, and net worth projection statement containing splits for each income, expense, asset, and liability category presented on an annual basis for up to 50 years.
– Dashboard with:
o Summarised projected cash flow and net worth statements;
o Compounded Annual Growth rate (CAGR) for each summarised cash flow and net worth line item
o List of key ratios including average income, savings and net worth growth, average % of expenses to income, and average % of liabilities to assets;
o Bar charts summarising projected savings and net worth across the projection period.
