Exemplar Performance Advantage Pty Ltd was formed in 1981 as a Management Consulting business with a focus on providing accurate information for decision making purposes. Over the years Exemplar has acted in many business advisory roles that can be at times termed as turnarounds or hands-on general management to find the key to its best performance.

It is the charting of these results over a long period of time and comparing against previous year’s results, budgets and industry performance indicators that highlighted the need for close monitoring when equity or debt was needed to support the business.

Projects that required fully integrated financial models with key variables to obtain an optimal result were developed using Excel spreadsheets. One $125 million project required a cost per megalitre of water to charge the government enterprise to break-even. It was these types of projects that stimulated the innovative development of the Exemplar FinTech Financial Literacy and Cash Flow Planning Model.
