Executive summary
Working capital management refers to the administration of all aspects of
current assets, namely cash, marketable securities, debtors and stock (inventories)
and current liabilities. The financial manager must determine levels and
composition of current assets. He must see that right sources are tapped to finance
current assets, and that current liabilities are paid in time. He must see that right
sources are tapped to finance current assets, and that current liabilities are paid in
time.

There are many aspects of working capital management, which make it


an important function of the financial manager:
• Time: working capital management requires much of the financial
manager’s time.
• Investment: working capital represents a large portion of the total
investments in assets.
• Significance: working capital management has great significance for all
firms but it is very critical for small firms.
• Growth: the need for working capital is directly related to the firm’s
growth.

Investment in current assets represents a very significant portion of the total


investment in assets. Working capital management is critical for all firms. A small
firm may not have much investment in fixed assets, but it has to invest to in current
assets. Small firms in India face a severe problem of collecting their debtors.

Banks have their own policies to assess the working capital of the firm to
finance them with the shortage.
Bank of Maharashtra adopts certain method for financing their customer’s
working capital requirements. There are certain recommendations from the
committees for the banks to finance the working capital needs of their clients.
It may, thus, be concluded that all precautions should be taken for the
effective and efficient management of working capital. The finance manager should
pay regular attention to the levels of current assets and the financing of current
assets.
