Planning investments

An investment involves the purchase of capital goods, such as machines for making future profits. Use calculations to evaluate the profitability of investment projects. Find out the risks related to investments. Finance the investments on a case-by-case basis with equity capital and liabilities or both. Think about whether it would be a better idea to lease the equipment than to buy them.
