Cowan Asset Management: “Why Cash is King When Selecting Investments”

There are a seemingly endless number of financial metrics made available to analyze within companies’ earnings statements; but there is a subset of these metrics on which we place greater emphasis—those involving cash.

In its August commentary “Why Cash is King When Selecting Investments”, Cowan Asset Management* explains why we focus more on cash and less on the metrics that are subject to accountants’ judgement.

*Cowan Asset Management was established in 2012 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Princeton Holdings Limited. The team manages the investment capital of the Princeton Holdings group of companies, the largest of which has been a Canadian insurance provider for over 140 years.
