Investment Decision

(redirected from Financial Decision)

Investment Decision

Determination of where, when, how, and how much capital to spend and/or debt to acquire in the pursuit of making a profit. An investment decision is often reached between an investor and his/her investment advisors. Depending on the type of brokerage account an investor has, investment managers may or may not have tremendous leeway in making decisions without consulting the investor himself/herself. Factors contributing to an investment decision include, but are not limited to: capital on hand, projects or opportunities available, general market conditions, and a specific investment strategy.
