Starting in ER (BB Bank, Grocery Retail)

Hi everybody,

I have landed a dream role in ER (coming from audit) with the sector focused on Food Retail (e.g. Walmart, Carrefour etc) - within my notice period I am looking to brush up my technical skills to really start the role in a good position. I had two questions:

  • I aim to improve both my valuation knowledge (especially DCF and Multiples) and Excel modelling skills - is there anything, in particular, you would suggest to certainly incorporate within my practice (perhaps certain models, formulas or theoretical concepts)?

  • Is there anything else I should ensure I am comfortable with and have a stable grasp of knowledge other than the industry of course?

Thanks all!
