Investment control


Investment control is the process of verifying the implementation and ensuring the implementation of all management decisions in the field of investment activity in order to implement the investment strategy.

Effective investment control must meet a number of requirements, which include:
  1. timeliness of control;
  2. flexibility of control methods;
  3. ease of control;
  4. cost-effectiveness of control.
Alfa Resonance Capital Ltd offers and carries out various types of investment control:
  • External investment control – identifying trends in the development of the company’s investment activities, identifying changes in the factors of investment attractiveness of the company, as well as monitoring the compliance of the company’s investment activities with existing standards;
  • Internal investment control – verification of the implementation of investment plans and management decisions in the field of investment in order to implement the company’s investment strategy;
  • Strategic investment control – the implementation of the investor’s investment strategy, the implementation of its main indicators;
  • Tactical investment control – fulfillment of indicators of tactical investment activity plans;
  • Operational investment control – monitoring the implementation of calendar plans and investment activity budgets.
The result of investment control is the identification of deviations of actual results from the planned and analysis of the causes of these deviations. Negative deviations are eliminated by making coordinating decisions and eliminating the identified causes.
Alfa Resonance Capital Ltd carries out investment control through the following successive steps:
  • Monitoring the implementation of investment targets;
  • Identification of deviations of actual results of investment activities from the planned ones, as well as determination of the reasons for these deviations;
  • Identification of serious deterioration in the investment position of the company;
  • Development of operational management decisions to normalize the investment activities of the company in accordance with the objectives of the investment plans;
  • Correction, if necessary, of individual planned goals and indicators of investment activity in connection with changes in the external and internal conditions for its implementation.
Effective organization of investment control involves monitoring investment activity. Monitoring of investment activity is a mechanism for constant monitoring of controlled indicators of investment activity, determining the size of deviations of actual results from those envisaged and identifying the causes of these deviations. The organization of monitoring of investment activity contributes to the establishment of a continuous process of monitoring the main investment indicators, which, in turn, leads to an increase in the efficiency of investment management.
Investment controlling is a controlling system, which ensures the concentration of control actions in the priority areas of investment activity, timely identification of deviations of actual results from those envisaged and the adoption of operational management decisions to ensure its normalization.
