Finance Definition

What Is Finance?

Finance is a term for matters regarding the management, creation, and study of money and investments. Finance can be broadly divided into three categories, public finance, corporate finance, and personal finance. There are many other specific categories, such as behavioral finance, which seeks to identify the cognitive (e.g., emotional, social, and psychological) reasons behind financial decisions.

The Basics of Finance

Finance, as a distinct branch of theory and practice from economics, arose in the 1940s and 1950s with the works of Markowitz, Tobin, Sharpe, Treynor, Black, and Scholes, to name just a few. Of course, topics of finance—such as money, banking, lending, and investing—had been around since the dawn of human history in some form or another.

Today, “finance” is typically broken down into three broad categories: Public finance includes tax systems, government expenditures, budget procedures, stabilization policy and instruments, debt issues, and other government concerns. Corporate

Finance – Wikipedia

Academic discipline studying businesses and investments

Finance is the management of money, particularly in relation to companies, organisations, or governments. Specifically, it deals with the questions of how and why an individual, company or government acquires the money needed – called capital in the company context – and how they spend or invest that money. [1] Finance is then often split per the following major categories: corporate finance, personal finance and public finance.[2]

At the same time, finance is about the overall “system”
[2]
– i.e. the financial markets that allow the flow of money, via investments and other financial instruments, between and within these areas;
this “flow” is facilitated by the financial services sector.

A major focus within finance is thus investment management — called money management for individuals, and asset management for institutions — and finance then

Bloomberg

(Bloomberg) — Elon Musk wasn’t about to let a revenue-less manufacturer of zero-emission semi trucks steal the spotlight from Tesla Inc.The chief executive officer sent an email to employees before the market opened Wednesday declaring that it is “time to go all out” and put Tesla’s Semi into volume production. Musk didn’t give a time frame for when he expects mass output to actually happen. Just six weeks ago, Tesla said it was postponing initial deliveries to 2021, roughly two years later than initially planned.If Musk was looking to regain the attention of any investors whose eyes had wandered toward Nikola Corp., the market got the memo. Tesla’s stock surged past $1,000 for the first time, while shares of newly listed Nikola sold off after days of hype about its plans to bring battery-electric and fuel-cell haulers to market in the coming years.“This is Elon making noise because
