Seminar Structure

Financial Mathematics and
Excel-based Cash Flow Modelling

The webcast consists of two lectures. In Block 1, participants will receive a refresher on financial mathematical methods (only in German language), which will serve as a foundation for the Cash Flow Modelling in Block 2. The Financial Mathematics lecture lasts for about two hours and is divided into 5 blocks or 14 units, covering fundamental concepts. The Cash Flow Modelling lecture has a net lecture time of approximately five hours. Participants will have access to the webcast for eight weeks. Upon completion of the webcast, they will receive a certificate of participation.

This seminar will provide a step-by-step presentation of the components of a cash flow model, demonstrating their practical implementation in Microsoft Excel through concrete examples. You will gain a deeper understanding of relevant investment theory concepts and apply them to construct a calculation framework. Furthermore, we will explore how to incorporate real-life scenarios into the model. By the end of the seminar, you will possess an extensive toolkit to effectively address questions that arise in your professional endeavors. This includes evaluating the appropriate level of modeling complexity and interpreting analysis outcomes.

Content Overview

Mastering Cash Flow Modelling: A Comprehensive Webcast

Block 1 Block 2

Block 1

Block 1

Basics of Financial Mathematics

Time: Approx. 2 hours - Prof. Dr. Tobias Just (FRICS) – in German language

Financial mathematics plays a crucial role in the real estate industry, especially considering the long-term timeframes and planning involved in real estate projects, which highlight the time value of money. The main focus lies in interest and annuity calculations, supplemented by credit & repayment, as well as investment appraisal (including complete financial plans).

Learning objectives:

  • Introduction to Financial Mathematics
  • Interest Calculation:
    • Basics of interest calculation
    • Exponential compounding and discounting
    • Compounding within interest-on-interest calculations
    • Excursion - Logarithms
  • Annuity Calculation:
    • Annuities and future value of annuities
    • Present value of annuities
    • Perpetuity
    • Advance payment in annuity calculation
  • Credit & Repayment:
    • Basics of repayment
    • Annuity repayment
  • Investment Appraisal:
    • Net present value method
    • Internal rate of return
    • Return on investment (ROI)

Block 2

Block 2

Cash Flow Modelling

Time: Approx. 5 hours - Prof. Dr. Leo Cremer

Participants will learn how the capital value model works and will be able to assess how the included parameters influence each other after this block. Together, we will develop a DCF (Discounted Cash Flow) model in Microsoft Excel, followed by a model to calculate the yield using the Internal Rate of Return (IRR).

In the webcast, we will first build a simple basic model, which will then be gradually expanded and brought closer to the "real" world. Participants will learn how a DCF model can be converted into an interest rate or yield (IRR) and the significance of a calculated yield using this method. Additionally, participants will learn under which conditions they can apply the learned methods effectively and when not.

Learning Steps: Concepts of Investment Analysis

  • Overview: Cash Flow Modelling is aimed to support investment decisions. The individual learning modules are oriented towards this goal and are motivated by this objective in the overview.
  • Basic Model: The starting point of the Cashflow Model is the cash flows of real estate. The jointly created basic model captures cash flows from transactions, such as buying and selling, and from operational management, such as rents and operations.
  • Dynamics: Since the cash flows from a property change over time, this dynamic needs to be included in a Cash Flow Model. We focus on depicting the development of rental payments both generally and individually; furthermore, we establish a connection to estimating the selling price.
  • Key Figures: Various key figures have been developed to make investments more comparable, based on cash flows. Several variants of the net present value and yield will be introduced, implemented, and analyzed.
  • Financing: The investment is opposed by its financing, and for real estate, a significant component is bank loans. We will implement cash flows for the central loan options, examine the leverage effect, and include common credit indicators.
  • Taxes: We will complement the model components of property and loan with the aspect of income taxes. As their impact is highly individual, the focus here is on supplementing the typical depreciation structure and income statement.
  • Risk: A significant advantage of an Excel-based Cash Flow Model is the ability to easily calculate alternative scenarios. Therefore, we will develop several options to incorporate meaningful risk analyses, including simulation, using built-in tools.
  • Outlook: Now it's your turn: Design, implement, and interpret an individual Cash Flow Model for your specific situation.
