Understanding Corporate Finance

All the corporates in India are in constant need of funds for operating their businesses. Corporate finance is the area of finance. It deals in raising the finances of companies.

Corporate finance manages financial decisions that affect operations like Capital Budgeting, Capital Raising, Investment Decisions, etc. Let’s understand what corporate finance is all about.

The finance of the company can be raised in two ways. That is Debt and Equity finance. Equity funding is generated by selling shares of the company and reinvesting the same amount.
