Economic managers are accountable for the monetary wellness of an organization. Finance is a single of the most essential elements of business enterprise management and consists of analysis associated to the use and acquisition of funds for the enterprise. The Standing Committee on Finance meets at least twice a year, and has been assigned a series of activities by the Parties in relation to its 4 functions. The Commission monitors developments in SMEs’ access to finance by way of the joint European Commission/European Central Bank Survey on the access to finance of enterprises (Safe). Papers that apply asset pricing and microstructure evaluation to corporate finance problems are also welcome.
