According to the WSO Dictionary,

"Internal Rate of Return or IRR is a financial metric used to discount capital budgeting and to make the net present value of all future cash flows equal to zero. For this reason, it is used alongside a Discounted Cash Flow analysis.

IRR is an estimate of the rate of return that an investment is expected to provide. Usually a higher IRR means a more profitable investment."
