Finance Definition

Finance is the study of the management of money. This field encompasses the subfield of investing as well as the methods used to build and acquire funds. It is about the flow of money within an economic system and the trends that are observed in this flow. The three main areas of finance are personal finance, corporate finance, and public or government finance. Finance also covers related areas like debt and credit, banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Finance is not an isolated topic, but is instead interwoven with nearly all other human activities that exist within economic systems.
