What is the primary objective of working capital management?

Answer:

The primary objective of working capital management is to avoid over investment or under investment in current assets, as a very large amount of funds are blocked in current assets in practical circumstances. Management of working capital ensures that sufficient cash is available to meet day to day cash requirements. Maximization of profits is another primary objective of working capital management. The management of working capital involves managing inventories, accounts receivable and payable, and cash. In other words, the goal of working capital management is to ensure that a firm is able to continue its operations and that it has sufficient ability to satisfy both maturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses.
