The paper compares the Net Present Value and the Internal Rate of Return Methods paying particular attention to Mutually Exclusive Projects. In addition it looks into the reinvestment rate assumption concept. Using a different approach to those used to‐date, it is shown that the reinvestment assumption should not concern analysts, provided they use the Net Present Value Method.
