Abstract. Investment activity of enterprises, in terms of equipment procurement and total volumes of capital investments, turned out to be rather high in 2017 (and in the first half of 2018). In the ranking of the investments’ limiting factors, “lack of financial resources”and “high prices for equipment and construction”remained to be paramount constraints. Enterprises suppose that bank loans and own funds are the main sources of finance for capital investments. At the same time, most of the companies are not trying to get a bank loan to finance capital investments.
