Capital planning

Capital Planning

The process of Capital Planning throughout the Western world is undergoing significant change as we begin to understand the liabilities of Capital expenditures related to our installed infrastructure.

Historically, Capital dollars have been spent on new infrastructure, but more and more, organizations are finding that there is competition for Capital funding which has never existed in the past. As a result, we are beginning to struggle with the concepts of LCC data, prioritization of Capital needs, allocation of finite Capital dollars for what appear to be infinite Capital needs and finally, an ability to anticipate, much more accurately, funding liabilities well into the future.

This last point has major ramifications for the financial planners, as we are at a point wherein we can, with a certain amount of accuracy, anticipate potentially fatal flaws in our financial plans, be it as part of the public sector managing huge infrastructure assets (ie. roads, schools, airports) or the private sector who are dependent on the return on Capital to ensure existence within an equity or bond financial market.
