There is a significant difference between economics and finance. To understand the differences we must understand each of the categories and learn their fundamental principles.
Finance is a fund management science. There are three general areas of finance : business finance, public finance and personal finance. The basic principle of finance is saving money and lending money. These operations are accomplished with the help of financial institutions. The science of finance deals with the interrelation of the concepts of time, risk and money.
Economics is a social science. The science of economics studies the production, consumption and distribution of services or goods. The science of economics is trying to explain how economies work and how do different economies interact. The analysis of the science of economics is applied in various fields like finance, business, government, education, law, politics, social institutions, science and many more.

One of the most popular strategies is investing via exchange-traded funds (ETFs). ETF investing means you don’t have to choose individual stocks.
Instead, they are chosen for you. For instance, if you want to invest in gold stocks but don’t know which stocks to pick, there are dozens of gold ETFs already out there that are baskets for popular gold stocks.
If you want to go full Wolf of Wall Street and pick your stocks, however, you will need to conduct some research.

New report: The Future of FinTech: A Paradigm Shift in Small Business Finance
For decades, banks and insurers have employed the same relatively static, highly profitable business models. But today they find themselves confronted on all sides by innovators seeking to disrupt their businesses. Crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lenders, mobile payments, bitcoin, robo-advisers – there seems to be no end to the diversity, or to the sky-high valuations, of these “fintech” innovators.
Yet, some might note that they have heard this tune before. The direct banks and “digi-cash” of the 90s captured the imagination of journalists and investors in a similar fashion, but ultimately had little impact. In fact, the financial services industry has been remarkably impervious to past assaults by innovators, partially due to the importance that scale, trust and regulatory know-how have traditionally played in this space.
However, as they say in investing, “past performance is not an indicator of

Sustainable finance is a work stream aimed at supporting the European Green Deal by channelling private investment to the transition to a climate-neutral economy, as a complement to public money.
Sustainable finance generally refers to the process of taking due account of environmental and social considerations when making investment decisions, leading to increased investment in longer-term and sustainable activities.
More specifically, environmental considerations refer to climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as the environment more broadly and the related risks (e.g. natural disasters). Social considerations may refer to issues of inequality, inclusiveness, labour relations, investment in human capital and communities.
The governance of public and private institutions, including management structures, employee relations and executive remuneration, plays a fundamental role in ensuring the inclusion of social and environmental considerations in the decision-making process.
All three components – environmental, social and governance (ESG) – are integral parts of sustainable economic
