Financial ModelingQuestion: Is financial modeling something that is dealt with mostly in the US, or is it truly an international industry?

Answer: Fortunately for its practitioners, financial modeling is truly an international industry. Not just international in the sense that financial modeling is practiced in almost every country on earth. But in the sense that financial models today knit together data and information from multiple countries into one unified, multi-country and complex model. So the good news is that as a financial modeler, you will be in high demand in just about any country on earth (provided you speak the language). Moreover, if you become an expert at global financial modeling, you will be even more in demand. To give you an example, a hedge fund today invest as much abroad as it does in the U.S. And if you work for a corporate firm such as Microsoft or General Electric or General Mills, you will soon realize that such companies have global sales and operations, so your financial models will also be international in nature.
