Frequently asked questions
Finance refers to how money transfers between those who save it or invest it and those who need it. The process of "financing" means you provide money to help make it possible. Therefore, the world of finance involves all the tools, methodologies, and technologies involved in getting money to people who either want to spend it or lend it to someone else. This includes banks, private lenders, equity funds, and stockholders. It also involves individual borrowers, companies that need funds to support growth, and the systems that help financial parties interact. Finance is involved in all types of lending and borrowing, including those that don't include traditional money. For example, cryptocurrencies include decentralized finance as an important element of the digital asset world, and when commodities are traded for each other, financial principles and structures guide the process.
