What is Finance?





ZACH DE GREGORIO, CPA

A practical description of how Finance is used in the business world. This video provides a definition of Finance. Finance is the science of managing money. Every subject area within Finance, whether asset allocations, investing, planning for retirement, etc, it always comes back to the scientific approach of making financial decisions. If the definition of finance is that simple, why is Finance so complicated? This video provides an example of how Finance becomes complicated very quickly. The example describes how to decide the best way to use 10k of savings. The video reviews five different options and discusses a financial approach to evaluate your alternatives. Finance strives to answer the questions: How do you decide between those options? What is the best way to manage your money? It is not as simple as choosing the highest rate of return. Because the level of risk is different for every person, this adds to the complexity and suggests a different answer for each individual. What if you do not have any money? It is not about the amount of money, it is about financial decision making. No matter what you are evaluating, if you can frame your decision in terms of financial impact and risk, then you will get better outcomes. You are putting your assets and liabilities in positions based on your assumptions for the future. Using financial tools and processes will result in better outcomes that are more aligned with your goals.

  1. change your background appearance it's not attractive, ofcourse it's need not but attractive video appearance good for your videos.and one more thing you have good knowledge about finance I liked that.

  2. I'm doing management and marketing for undergraduate. But I'm still in the position to switch to Finance and marketing. I have interests in Marketing but kinda want to do Finance to give math another chance. Should I switch?

  3. I'm an undergraduate student majoring in physics and people keep telling me that all the physicists (well, a lot of them) are getting into finance… now I'm curious. Is this true?

  4. i actually think accounting is a lot more complicated than finance. i feel if you have a solid grasp of math then you can get a handle on finance concepts which tend to flow and jive much more easily than accounting
