  • Investment decision - Capital budgeting decisions which is related to decisions regarding investment in fixed assets.
  • Working capital decision - These decisions are related to the investment in current assets and current liabilities and include several related decisional areas like Management of cash, receivables and inventory - deciding the optimum working capital requirements of a firm etc.
  • Dividend decision - These decisions are related to distribution of profit earned by a firm. As the firm does not have any option in payment of its cost to debt holders or preference holders, this decision belongs completely to equity share holders and covers several theories of dividend payment.
