For Immediate Release
WEDNESDAY July 20th, 2016, New york, USA – Professional Services Champions League (PSCL) today welcomes PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) as the major Professional Services partner of ModelOff, including the 2016 Financial Modeling World Championships.
PwC will be supporting the ModelOff community across a number of activities including the Financial Modeling World Championships (the largest global competition for finance and financial modeling), the Global Training Camps (two-day educational bootcamps held around the world) and a series of Meetup networking events in 17 cities around the world.
The leader of PwC’s Deals Modelling team in Australia, Ian Bennett, said “We’re delighted to be partnering with ModelOff. Financial modelling has rapidly become one of the most sought after skills on Analyst’s CVs as businesses have come to appreciate it as a critical capability in its own right, and yet people all over the world find themselves building models that support multi-million dollar decisions without any formal training. PwC is excited by ModelOff’s passion for growing and developing the profession of financial modelling, and supporting initiatives such as the ModelOff Global Training Camps is a great way to help stimulate improvements in practices and continual skill development within the industry.” PwC will join S&P Global, Microsoft and Intralinks as major global partners of ModelOff in 2016.
ModelOff’s Financial Modeling World Championship is the world’s largest competition for Advanced Excel, Financial Analysis, Financial Modeling, Investment and Quantitative Professionals. Founded in 2012, the global competition attracts over 4,000 professionals and students annually from over 110 countries. The world championship involves two online qualification rounds and a Live World Finals in London, United Kingdom.
“PwC’s involvement with ModelOff traces back to 2012 where PwC employee Alex Gordon took out first place in the inaugural Financial Modeling World Championship Finals in New York. Since then, both Gordon and his PwC colleague Michael Clarke have been repeat ModelOff Finalists, demonstrating PwC’s strength and commitment to financial modeling” said ModelOff cofounder John Persico. “We look forward to working with such a world class organization that is keen to help grow and develop the global financial modeling community.”
PwC is part of a global network of firms in 157 countries, 756 locations and with more than 208,000 people who are committed to delivering quality in assurance, advisory and tax services.
