CROCI (Cash Return On Capital Invested) is an established value-oriented investment philosophy developed by Deutsche Bank. It makes adjustments to the figures presented in reported financial statements to seek insight into the economic value of companies with the aim of identifying stocks with potential for price appreciation.


The CROCI valuation methodology looks at companies the way a CFO might analyze potential investments. CROCI asks important questions such as: What is the economic return on investment? Is the company generating enough cash to finance its growth and replace its assets? As a result, CROCI aims to see data in a way that is closer to economic reality than traditional accounting P/E ratios. CROCI methodology is the same regardless of geography and sector; so it is easy to compare companies from US software giants to Japanese steelmakers.

Investment Process

The CROCI process provides unique, differentiated investment analysis

  • Fundamental: Analyse reported financial statements and consistently adjust them to provide insight into the CROCI economic value of companies
  • Global: Maintain a database of 850 stocks on a global basis
  • Objective: There is no subjectivity or opinion. Economic and Market outlook, personal opinion and market environment have no input to the CROCI process

The process aims to assist investors in avoiding stocks with the greatest potential for future negative performance (i.e., those stocks with the highest economic over-valuations that tend to mean-revert at some time in the future), while favoring those with a greater potential for positive performance

Inside the CROCI valuation methodology

CROCI process converts financial-statement data into corporate economic information. The process is systematic and requires a rigorous and fundamental appraisal of each stock in the coverage universe according to CROCI procedures manual. The result is a set of data that is adjusted for inflation and takes into account "hidden" assets and liabilities. From this data “CROCI Economic PE ratio” is calculated. CROCI Economic PE ratio is comparable across regions and sectors.

Discover CROCI

" In buying shares in a company, an equity investor becomes a part-owner of that company. A rigorous analysis of a company’s fundamentals is essential to assess its underlying economic valuation. The challenge is to achieve consistency and comparability across all companies globally which are covered by CROCI. This has been at the heart of CROCI since 1996. "
