While the types and degree of risks an organization may be exposed to depend upon a number of factors such as its size, complexity business activities, volume etc. The basic premise of leverage in investment portfolios is to borrow at a cost of capital lower than the return at which the capital can be reinvested. Corporations use financial leverage to create flexibility, maintain access to capital markets, and buy back equity, and ultimately create shareholder value.
