Finance

Finance is the study of how investors allocate their assets over time under conditions of certainty and uncertainty. Finance measures risks vs. profits and gives an indication of whether the investment is good or not. Finance involves keeping track of an organization's daily operations, analyzing its current position in the market, and offering expert advice and audits. Finance can be broken into three different sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance, and personal finance.
