Corporate Finance refers to an organization's financial aspect that deals with raising funds for startups or expanding an already running business.

An investment bank advisor who helps with a corporate finance transaction is also called a corporate finance specialist. Whether you need to restructure your balance sheet, raise long-term growth capital, reduce your cost of capital, or expand your company, a corporate finance expert can help.

Corporations are most often financed through a variety of different means. These varying types of corporate finance include both stock sales and bond transactions. While many transactions are tightly regulated at the federal level by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), certain transactions are regulated or limited by state securities commissions.
