Financial managers attend to the firm's financial resources. They analyze the financial impact of business decisions such as equipment investments, new plant construction and new product introductions. They examine the effect of economic forces such as inflation, and government actions such as industry regulation on the firm's finances. In addition, they work in credit analysis, forecasting and planning. In multi-national firms, financial analysts also examine exchange rates and currency fluctuations.
