Answer is C. Swim Suits follows a relatively conservative approach to current asset financing; that is, some of its short-term needs are met by permanent capital.

Because in this situation, the firm uses a small amount of short term credit to meet its peak requirements, but it also meets a part of its seasonal needs by “storing Liquidity” in the form of marketable securities.
