When we speak about finance we are often not talking about it in its true sense. Finance really means the management of substantial sums of money – the kinds of sums that governments and big companies deal with. But often when we talk about finance we are simply talking about the finances of our home or club, or even our small business.

The term finance is no longer limited to the huge sums of money that big corporations deal with; it has also come to mean just the simple management of money. Though of course there is nothing simple about managing and dealing with money.

For instance non resident French mortgages, probably sounds like Chinese to someone who doesn’t have firsthand experience with paying a mortgage in a country where you are not a resident. Think even about something simpler – if you have never bought or financed a car, you would have no idea how to do it.

Unfortunately finance is a massive area and unless you have experienced some parts of it yourself; it can be quite difficult to navigate. That being said there are all sorts of individuals and companies who specialise and giving good advice about how to manage your finances.

There are even companies that will do it for you. So don’t worry too much about it.
