CFO Insights: Capital allocation—Is it time for a refresh?

Published on: Nov 10, 2021

CFOs are constantly weighing the return on investments of their business’s time, resources, and human capital for the organization’s health and shareholder value. But what about the investments themselves? And why should CFOs consider paying attention to capital allocation now?

For finance leaders, capital allocation isn’t just about getting higher returns from lower outlays. It’s about measuring profit from internal investments and maintaining the cash flow that allows those investments to happen. Done right, capital allocation can give an organization a true edge over its competitors.

In this issue of CFO Insights, we’ll discuss the stakeholders involved in capital allocation decisions, the biases inherent in those same decisions, and why having the right capital allocation strategy can help narrow the gap between what a portfolio could deliver and what it actually does deliver.
