Make the right investment decisions

Investments are necessary to create value, however, they can impact the Balance Sheet negatively. Investing is all about weighing up risks. That’s why it is useful to have frameworks and methods to help you make informed decisions. This programme introduces concepts such as cash flow, net working capital, payback and net present value (NPV).

You will be able to better manage the net capital in your company and to assess the profitability of your investment projects with more accuracy. You will make informed decisions about all aspects of investment. And you will always maintain an equilibrium in the management of investment-linked risks.
