Corporate finance will be one of the main factors influencing a business’s location (or relocation) strategy and its decisions to deploy international assignees to an overseas destination, relocate individual employees, or carry out a group move.

With that in mind, this section provides coverage of the full spectrum of corporate financial topics relevant to both large and small companies, through articles, news, tools and other resources.
