The challenges of capital allocation

Having the insights and information necessary to make difficult and timely trade-off decisions in allocating capital has the potential to provide an organization with a significant competitive advantage. Across industries, organizations face many of the same obstacles associated with strategic capital allocation, which commonly include:

  • A lack of consistency and transparency surrounding information and assumptions about capital investment alternatives
  • Difficulties in making comparisons between investments given their divergence on factors such as strategic benefits, risk and reward, priorities, interdependencies with other investments, and time horizons
  • Capital planning tools and processes that don’t enable decision makers to readily collect, evaluate, and compare business cases, or to recommend custom optimal portfolios under different scenarios
