How much is too much cash? — Mounting reserves aren’t always healthy
Abstract: According to a recent survey, more than a third of CFOs are stashing away more operating cash flow in their bank accounts than ever before. But this could be an inefficient use of capital that borrowers will regret down the road. This article discusses the cost of stockpiling too much cash and how formal financial forecasts can provide a method to building up cash reserves. It then looks at ways to reinvest a cash surplus.
