It’s that time of year again — time for the world’s top financial modelers to unite for this year’s Financial Modeling World Championship competition, ModelOff.
That’s right. ModelOff is back, and the industry’s best financial professionals and students from all over the world are getting ready to put their financial modeling skills to the ultimate test.
For the second year, Intralinks is proud to partner with the Professional Services Champions League (PSCL) to sponsor this innovative competition. “Financial modeling and the use of excel are core to the M&A process and as such we are thrilled to be part of this exciting competition, said Matt Porzio, vice president of strategy and product marketing. “As many of our Intralinks Dealspace® users will compete globally this year, the partnership with ModelOff allows us to further engage the dealmaking community beyond improving and accelerating execution.”
In 2014, ModelOff attracted over 4,000 entries from more than 100 countries. Using their modeling speed, innovation, data and risk understanding skills, entrants competed for the grand prize and prestige of being known as the world’s best financial modeler. Last year, Deutsche Bank’s Diarmuid “The Diamond” Early took home the grand prize and title of ModelOff champion.
This year we’re expecting over 5,000 entries. Who will be the reigning victor?
