Working Capital Management

Working Capital Management

Working Capital Management (WCM) covers the relationship between short-term assets and short-term debts of a company. It is an activity that a CFO cannot ignore. The aim of WCM is to ensure that a company can continue its activities by having sufficient capital available when short-term debts and operational costs must be met. Ideally, working capital is returned to a level where as much capital as possible can be released without substantially increasing the risk for the company. This sounds logical, but to what extent is it feasible? Research shows that this topic is of high priority to most companies. However, in practice often only good intentions remain. The subject of WCM often receives only occasional and limited attention instead of structured and regularly. This is a missed opportunity.
