You will receive regular financial reports and probably take advice from highly qualified accountants, but what do historical numbers tell you about the future? Using gearing ratios and other key indicators allows you to monitor financial performance and restore the balance in the short term, but the future is full of possibilties.

Capital investment, equity funding, joint ventures, acquisitions and mergers are all part of the blank canvas on which you can paint your financial landscape.
