20, 22, 27 + 29 September 2023, virtual course


This course is designed to explain how financial measures of corporate performance are calculated. The course covers the basics of financial statement analysis and enables participants to confidently use financial ratios and financial terminology.

This is an introductory level course designed for users of financial reports and accounts who have no prior or limited knowledge of corporate financial information. Participants will also learn how to use a company financial statement to distil the relevant information and how much cash is generated by the business.

This virtual classroom has the aim of providing the attendees with:
  • Sufficient knowledge to understand the information provided by the Income Statement, the Balance Sheet and the Cash Flow Statement, which is far from being intuitive.

  • The capacity to understand the relationship between the three main financial statements, as approaching each one independently provides an incomplete view of a firm’s business model and performance.

  • The main and most relevant financial ratios to understand the capacity of a firm to create economic value identifying the risks involved in doing so
