Capital Planning

Any entity, as part of its strategic planning process, should address the needs and availability of capital.  In a financial services environment, this takes on a special importance due to regulatory requirements for capital.

 

 The objective of capital planning is to analyze, develop, and prioritize the sources and uses of capital. Sound analysis, followed by reasoned conclusions, should be the basis for recommendations about the timing and capacity for growth. Capital planning should address goals of a company and its constituency including:  balance sheet changes, business risk profile, dividend policy, tax structure, and liquidity of stock.

 

 In today’s environment, many capital plans are required in response to regulatory oversight.  Usually this means a plan must be developed while some of the details remain open. We recognize the need to provide a meaningful plan, yet allow enough variation to allow for the moving parts. Additionally, our professionals are experienced in taking the subsequent steps required for execution of a plan. (see Private Placements of Debt or Equity)
