Financial engineering: a tool to increase shareholder value
There are many financial tools that can be used to monitor the progress of a tactic, such as financial statements. balance sheets/income statements etc.) which provide insight into current performance & any changes that may have occurred over time. Additionally, metrics like return on investment or gross profit margin can also be used to gauge how well investments/sales initiatives are performing relative to expectations & if further action is required in order to maximize returns. Other options include tracking cash flow & liquidity ratios which can help identify any short-term issues that may arise due to changes in market conditions or customer behaviour thus enabling more informed decisions going forward.
