Cash Flow (Investment Appraisal) 2-4 Cash Flow (Investment Appraisal)
This calculator uses the discounted cash flow (DCF) method to perform investment appraisal
by totalling cash flow for a fixed period. This calculator can perform the following four types
of investment appraisal.
• Net present value (NPV )
• Net future value (NFV )
• Internal rate of return (IRR )
• Pay back period (PBP )
A cash flow diagram like the one shown below helps to visualize the movement of funds. CF2 CF3 CF4 CF5 CF7
With this graph, the initial investment amount is represented by CF0. The cash flow one year
later is shown by CF1 , two years later by CF2 , and so on.
Investment appraisal can be used to clearly determine whether an investment is realizing
profits that were originally targeted. uNPV NPV = CF0 + CF2
