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. For this reason, HR global mobility managers and those providing professional relocation services, as well as global managers and corporate relocation experts, need a broad understanding of a range of corporate finance topics.

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.

Our Employee Finance  and UK Banking  sections contain a wealth of practical financial guidance for international assignees, relocating employees, and trailing spouses, partners and family members.

Our Directory  gives details of relocation specialists and suppliers in the global mobility industry who can provide bespoke professional support in the areas of corporate and employee finance.
