    I think this ratio tells us how much of the company’s current assets are financed by short term finance (payables and/ overdrafts).

    If too much of the current assets are financed by short term sources, the company is operating an aggressive working capital policy.

    Current assets should be divided into fluctuating current assets and permanent current assets. Permanent should be financed by long term sources and fluctuating by short term. This is a matching policy.
