Commercial finance is an incredibly broad term that encompasses a huge range of various roles and responsibilities relating to finance products. It’s often used to refer to financial products aimed at businesses, rather than at individuals. For example, lending, leasing, revolving credit options, business loans, and asset-based lending. It could also be used to refer to any type of financing that’s more expensive than a standard personal loan.
Businesses often require vastly complex financing solutions to cover their unique needs, and as a result, the products on offer need to be piloted by a range of highly specialised professionals that possess a vast knowledge of compliance laws. There are many, many different types of financial product in the commercial finance space, and just as many types of roles to manage them. Some key commercial finance function roles and responsibilities might include investment management, commercial finance management, banking analysts, accounts management, FP&A management, and CFO.
A comprehensive commercial financial function, enabled by leading-edge tech, and piloted by the top talent, can be more than another department – it can be a real business partner. Whether you need to build your own commercial finance function, or you’re hoping to develop a financial product of your own, you’re going to need the right people by your side to get it done. In a talent-short market, finding the world’s always-in-demand financial talent can be tough, regardless of whether or not a global recession looms over the horizon.
