Finance might appear to be a world away from physics and hence from your life. However, whether you take not of it or not, your daily life is governed by markets. Finance is ultimately the study of markets, specifically seen through a financial lens and the understanding of these has ramifications for everything from how much we are paid to where we live and what is available in the supermarket. Whilst it is impossible to do justice to such a wide topic in an hour, it is possible to begin to explore why it should be of interest, how physics fits with finance & why it's vital that physicists continue to take an interest in how this subject evolves.
