Capital investment is the acquisition of physical assets by a company for use in furthering its long-term business goals and objectives. Real estates, manufacturing plants, and machineries are among the many assets that are purchased as capital investments.

Global and local companies from various industries are spending on new plants and machineries in ways they have not done for years. On the demand side, pent up consumer spending is convincing companies that capital is worth outlaying -- a sign that businesses are buying into the world’s economic recovery prospects even as the omicron strain casts a shadow.

On the supply side, blockages and delays brought upon by the Covid-19 pandemic are forcing businesses to invest in new production facilities; calls for a cleaner environment are spurring spending on electric vehicles, batteries and alternative energy; and the big semiconductor crunch has prompted an influx of investment.

A recovery in business investment is critical for longer-term growth, as capital accumulation is key for lifting productivity growth. Longer-term investment will be driven by trends such as supply chain diversification and accelerated automation in the services sector.

This practical and timely workshop is designed specifically to help Finance Professionals and Business Managers look at the different ways to analyse a project or capital investment and also master the common financial tools used to evaluate its viability.
