Corporate finance is the area of finance dealing with the sources of funding and the capital structure of corporations.
Corporate finance deals with the capital structure of a corporation including its funding and the actions management take to increase the value of the company. Corporate finance also includes the tools and analysis utilized to prioritize and distribute financial resources.
The ultimate purpose of corporate finance is to maximize the value of a business through planning and implementing management resources while balancing risk and profitability.
Achieving the goals of corporate finance requires that any corporate investment be financed appropriately. The sources of financing are, generically, capital self-generated by the firm and capital from external funders, obtained by issuing new debt and equity (and hybrid- or convertible securities).
Corporations obtain finance through a variety of means, ranging from equity investments to credit arrangements. A firm might take out a loan from a bank or arrange for a line of credit. Whether it is capital funding, budgeting, investing, cash management or operating profit and loss, it is the responsibility of the management to ensure that shareholders get the maximum return on their investments in the form of dividends and increased share prices.
Though the goal remains the same, the exact nature of corporate finance varies from company to company, depending on the niche area in which they operate.
Business finance is the area of finance dealing with the sources of funding and the capital structure of corporations, the actions that managers take to increase the value of the firm to the shareholders, and the tools and analysis used to allocate financial resources.
