Dear Friend,

Greetings of the day!!!Finance Management

Finance as a career is very fascinating since you have to deal with numbers and money. There are various functions in Finance which are quite different from each other there are functions like

  • Accounting
  • Taxation
  • Audit
  • Banking Reconciliation
  • Corporate Finance
  • Treasury etc

All the above roles or function need a high level of understanding of various instruments of finance as well as the implication for the company.

Any Individual who would like to work in finance process should have following aptitude characteristics.

Analytic : A finance professional should have analytic ability since lot of work would need analysis and reporting

Error less : Since a Finance professional has to deal with money all the work which is done needs to be absolutely error less.

Perfection : All the work should be perfect and the need would be to do the job with the perfection

Eye for Detail : For a finance professional you should have a eye for details of the work which you do

Logical : Many of the task needs a logical approach and there may not be any ground rule to deal with the transaction which would come in front of you for first time and you have to deal with it as per you logic and understanding.

These are the basic skills one should have but also i would like to inform you that you would get to know all the things once you get in to the job, since every company would have different process and methods to deal in finance

I hope your query is resolved
