The area of corporate finance deals with the sources of funding and the capital structure of corporations, the actions that managers take to increase the value of the company to the shareholders, and the tools and analysis used to allocate financial resources. The primary goal of corporate finance is to maximize or increase shareholder value in congruence with the organization’s long-term goals.
Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments and aims to price assets, based on their risk level and their expected rate of return. Finance can also be defined as the discipline of money and resource management.
Financial management refers to the efficient and effective management of money in such a manner as to accomplish the objectives of the organization. It includes the acquisition, management and financing of resources. It includes the dynamics of managing both assets and liabilities, over the lifetime of a business or investment, under varying degrees of uncertainty and risk.
To this end, corporate financial management deals with the efficient allocation of all the resources of a corporation:
- Financial assets, such as stocks and bonds
- Real assets, such as plant and equipment
- Human assets, including the executives, the managers, the employees and the supply chain partners.
