Part one provides an overview of the hierarchy of finance activities in the firm and the phenomenon of outsourcing and offshoring of these activities. The phenomenon is then examined from a firm perspective, highlighting the major drivers, trends and issues using theoretical frameworks and case examples from the author’s in-depth interviews with 37 managers at 25 multinational firms. Finally, the socioeconomic issues and implications of offshoring activities are discussed in the context of both home and host countries.
