I'm building a chart on a report and I need to create a question for its title.

The chart shows return on capital employed, so I'm thinking about a title like:

What's our return on capital employed?


How well is our capital employed being remunerated?

Are these correct? I can't find a better one...

Thanks for helping!

  • Ok, but I want the title as a question. – Nuno Nogueira May 26 '17 at 14:11
  • What is the investment return? – SovereignSun May 26 '17 at 14:13

Your first suggestion,

What's our return on capital employed?

looks pretty good. It's short, snappy, and understandable. The second one is grammatically correct, but rather clunky and needs more time to understand.

What's our return on capital (ROC)? or What's our return on invested capital (ROIC)?

This is known as a Financial Ratio.


Return on capital (ROC), or return on invested capital (ROIC), is a ratio used in finance, valuation and accounting, as a measure of the profitability and value-creating potential of companies after taking into account the amount of initial capital invested.1 The ratio is calculated by dividing the after-tax operating income (NOPAT) by the book value of both debt and equity capital less cash/equivalents.

Note: employed is a no-go.
