Sophisticated Financial
Modeling

Modern public policy requires sophisticated spreadsheet models, financial pro formas, cost-benefit analyses and rate of return analyses. Columbia Capital has the tools, experience and staff expertise to build powerful and flexible financial models.

Driving Better Public Policy

The best models are those that tell the story of the potential consequences of a public policy decision.

While it is impossible to predict the future, well-built financial models allow governing body members, staff and the public to evaluate the range of outcomes of a particular decision. Great models are dynamic, allowing the user to instantaneously see the impacts of changes in modeling inputs and variables. Great models are also user-friendly and instinctive.

Columbia Capital's team regularly builds financial models to allow its clients to make smart decisions. Whether the purpose is intended to be internal to finance staff or posted to a website for use by the public, our models blend a keen understanding of the policy decision in question with the technical skills required to build models that are robust, flexible and thoughtful. Our clients regularly rely upon our models in their debt management programs, their economic development programs and for ad hoc consulting needs.
