    Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments. It includes the dynamics of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of different degrees of uncertainty and risk. Finance can also be defined as the science of money management. Finance aims to price assets based on their risk level and their expected rate of return. Finance can be broken into three different sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.

    Portugal (português: [puɾtuˈɣal]), oficialmente a República Portuguesa (português: República Portuguesa [ʁɛˈpuβlikɐ puɾtuˈɣezɐ]), é um país localizado principalmente na Península Ibérica, no sudoeste da Europa. É o estado soberano mais ocidental da Europa continental, sendo limitado a oeste e a sul pelo Oceano Atlântico e a norte e a leste pela Espanha. O seu território inclui também os arquipélagos atlânticos dos Açores e da Madeira, ambas regiões autónomas com governos regionais próprios. A língua oficial e nacional é o português. Portugal é o mais antigo Estado-nação da Península Ibérica e um dos mais antigos da Europa, tendo o seu território sido continuamente povoado, invadido e disputado desde a pré-história. Habitada por povos pré-célticos e célticos, visitados por fenícios-cartagineses, gregos antigos e governados pelos romanos, a quem se seguiram as invasões dos povos suebi e visigodos germânicos. Após a conquista muçulmana da Península Ibérica, a maior parte de seu território fazia parte de Al-Andalus. Portugal como país foi estabelecido durante a primeira Reconquista Cristã. Fundado em 868, o Concelho de Portugal ganhou destaque após a Batalha de São Mamede (1128). O Reino de Portugal foi posteriormente proclamado após a Batalha de Ourique (1139), e a independência de Leão foi reconhecida pelo Tratado de Zamora (1143). Nos séculos 15 e 16, Portugal estabeleceu o primeiro império marítimo e comercial global, tornando-se um das principais potências econômicas, políticas e militares do mundo. Durante este período, hoje conhecido como a Era dos Descobrimentos, os exploradores portugueses foram os pioneiros da exploração marítima, notadamente sob o patrocínio real do Príncipe Henrique, o Navegador e do Rei João II, com viagens notáveis ​​como a de Bartolomeu Dias para além do Cabo da Boa Esperança (1488 ), A descoberta de Vasco da Gama da rota marítima para a Índia (1497-1498) e a descoberta europeia do que viria a ser o Brasil (1500). Durante este tempo, Portugal monopolizou o comércio de especiarias, dividiu o mundo em hemisférios de domínio com Castela, e o império se expandiu com campanhas militares na Ásia. No entanto, eventos como o terremoto de Lisboa de 1755, a ocupação do país durante as Guerras Napoleônicas e a independência do Brasil (1822) apagaram em grande medida a opulência anterior de Portugal. Após a revolução de 1910 depôs a monarquia, a democrática mas instável Primeira República Portuguesa foi instituído, sendo posteriormente substituído pelo regime autoritário do Estado Novo. A democracia foi restaurada após a Revolução dos Cravos (1974), encerrando a Guerra Colonial Portuguesa. Pouco depois, a independência foi concedida a quase todos os seus territórios ultramarinos. A transferência de Macau para a China (1999) marcou o fim do que pode ser considerado um dos mais longevos impérios coloniais. Portugal deixou uma profunda influência cultural, arquitetônica e linguística em todo o mundo, com um legado de cerca de 250 milhões de falantes de português, e muitos crioulos baseados no português. É um país desenvolvido com uma economia avançada e elevados padrões de vida. Além disso, está bem colocado nas classificações de liberdade moral (2 °), paz (3 °), democracia (7 °), liberdade de imprensa (10 °), estabilidade (15 °), progresso social (18 °) e prosperidade (26 °). Membro das Nações Unidas e da União Europeia, Portugal foi também um dos membros fundadores da NATO, da zona euro, da OCDE e da Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa.
