Finance is a relatively broad term which includes a lot of things about the financial management, organization, and planning of funds and investments. The term has many other related and distant meanings in various fields such as accounting, economics, business, accounting, mortgages, risk, securities markets, and banking among others. It is a branch of business science that is concerned with the study of financial transactions and their determinants, particularly relating to the economic activities of a specific company or government. Finance is therefore not only the science of acquiring money, but also the art of making the most of it through proper organization, sound decision-making, and careful analysis. The discipline of finance is a large area with a number of different topics and subtopics involved.
There are several interrelated fields of study that are all included in the study of finance, including: micro and macro economics. Micro economics concerns the details of day-to-day finance. It includes such areas as retail sales and business operations, direct investment, business banking, and personal financial planning. A variety of short-term decisions, such as the purchase of a particular vehicle or piece of property, is also included within microeconomics.
Macroeconomics is closely related to micro economics in that it considers both the short-term and long-term aspects of the economy. Aspects of global finance such as currency exchange rates, interest rates, and financial markets are considered in this field. The study of international finance is considered to be a subfield of macroeconomics.
Public finance is intimately connected with the issue of wealth management. The role of public finance is to ensure that the social welfare of citizens is maintained through sound money, appropriate investments, and adequate retirement and insurance policies. One of the primary purposes of public finance is to assure that the resources owned by the country are used for the purposes intended. Other interrelated subjects covered include taxation, which is designed to raise funds for the societal needs and desires of citizens; management of national wealth; and the provision of public services, such as education and health care. Private finance is the area of finance that deals specifically with the needs of individual persons.
Real estate, corporate finance, and the lending industry are all included in the discipline of public finance. Real estate is an essential part of our everyday lives as buyers and sellers, builders, creditors, developers, home buyers and sellers, etc. Corporate finance refers to the financial activities of corporations, which include the purchasing, selling, and leasing of company owned assets. Lending is the process of borrowing money from others in the form of loans for specific purposes.
In a broader sense, the whole of the finance field includes financial goods and services. The scope of financial goods and services may extend to other economic arenas such as distribution, consumer, industrial and small businesses, government, utility services, professional services, education, health care, finance, mortgages, insurance, transport, communications, telecommunications, and other financial products and services. All these provide the means by which people and organizations can meet their goals and objectives. The scope of financial services goes on increasing as more organizations, for example companies, begin to offer a wide range of financial products and services. These products and services can be obtained through a wide variety of financing mechanisms such as bank loans, credit cards, savings accounts, life insurances, mortgage, securities, derivatives, commercial paper, invoice discounting, and a whole lot of other financial tools and systems.
