Master Capital Allocation
The 10 Levers for Maximizing Shareholder Returns (1.5 CPD)
In this course we are going to tackle capital allocation, that is, how the CEO, and you as CFO and their strategic partner, go about deploying cash inside the business. CEO’s are ultimately measured on their record of generating returns for their shareholders. The single most important determinant of shareholder returns is capital allocation. Knowing what tools you have available and when to use them is the key. We’ll look how and when you source cash. We’ll also look at the strategies behind selecting the most optimal use of that cash, which may include buying back shares in yourself.
