Finance is involved with the acquisition, investment and management of the cash resources of business entities, governmental agencies, and individuals. Its practitioners must have a thorough understanding of the financial markets where money is raised, know how to analyze investment opportunities, and because the objective of any financial decision is to maximize value, understand how investors determine value.
