What is Business Finance?
Business Finance is the application of numerical factors affecting the operations of a business. These numbers can be figures related to revenue, assets, credit flow, future projections, mergers, takeovers and every other financial aspect that influences the sustainability and earning capacity of an organization. This close relationship to numbers, statistics, analytics, skillset involving risk projections and strategic thinking, and significant impact to an organization’s financial management, makes Business Finance one of the most sought after career options for professionals globally.
Business Finance, in simple words, refers to the raising and managing of funds by businesses and organizations. Business Finance involves planning, analysis, and control operations. In small firms, these are the responsibilities of the financial manager, who is part of the middle and senior management and is at the higher levels of the organizational structure of a firm. In large companies, major financial decisions are often made by a finance committee.
Since Business Finance involves management of the funds and credit employed in the business, it acts as the foundation of any business. The typical finance requirements within an organization are to purchase assets, goods, raw materials and for the other flow of economic activities.
What is Financial Modeling?
Financial Modeling refers to the creation of a mathematical representation or model of the financial and operational characteristics of a business. Some of the most practical applications involving financial modeling include business valuation, management decision making, capital budgeting, financial statement analysis, and determining the firm’s cost of capital. Such models provide a simplistic illustration of how the firm actually creates value for its shareholders. Their real value comes from forcing the model builder to think about the important relationships among the firm’s financial statements and to focus on the key determinants of value creation and the assumptions underlying forecasts. Financial models provide simulation capabilities that act as a useful means of assessing alternative options and associated risks and of identifying how firm value is affected by different economic events. For e.g., to estimate the value of a firm, financial modeling helps in a sound forecast of the future cash flows, assets valuation, user acquisition, sales growth, risk anticipation, etc.
A financial model consists of one or more input parameters along with data and formulas that are used to perform calculations or make predictions. By changing the values of the input parameters, one can do what-if studies to see what happens when the inputs change or the parameters affecting the outcome are altered in different combinations. It is a science of building models to depict financials statements and investments.
