CORPORATE FINANCE TRAINING
WHAT IS CORPORATE FINANCE?
Corporate Finance Departments plan and execute all financial strategies of companies and oversee all their financial activities. The largest of these firms are called Fortune 500 companies. The primary concern of Corporate Finance Departments is maximizing the shareholder value. This is ensured by making a number of intricate capital investment decisions across all financial operations of the company. Such decisions involve but are not limited to: establishing whether or not to invest in a proposal; determining how to pay for an investment (e.g., if equity should be used or debt taken out); raising the funding needed for new ventures; managing the working capital of the enterprise, its borrowing / lending, etc. In addition to the above, Corporate Finance Departments in investment banks look into corporate acquisition analysis and assess financial risk.
WHAT SKILLS ARE REQUIRED TO WORK IN CORPORATE FINANCE?
Corporate Finance jobs entail strong analytical skills and predispose dynamic decision-making based on these. Proficiency in writing models in MS Excel is expected, along with the ability to use information databases like Reuters. Valuation skills are a must and should be demonstrated at the recruitment stage for further selection.
