10 Business English Phrases for Finance Professionals

00:0000:00

Piyush: So now that the business is running on autopilot, can we have a look at new business to expand?

Vishaal: Oh absolutely, I have been researching the online teaching business and from what I can see they’re doing quite well and seem to be making good profits.                       

Piyush: I agree, we must grow our online business quickly.

Vishaal: You know, I was a bit unsure about online business, but how can we keep our costs low as we grow?

Do you use these simple words during your financial meetings?

Piyush: So now that the business is running on autopilot, can we have a look at a new venture to expand?

Vishaal: Oh absolutely, I have been researching the online teaching business and from what I can see they’re doing quite well and seem to be generating a healthy return.

Piyush: I agree, we must now focus on growing our online business more aggressively.

Vishaal: You know, I was a bit unsure about online business, but how else can we decrease our overheads and scale up at the same time?

Piyush: Okay, I see where you’re going with this. A way in which the online business will not erode our profitability.

Vishaal: Yes, in order for our business valuation to be much better.

Piyush: Hmm… how about we look at crowd funding? It’s a common trend now in the current economic market.

Vishaal: That’s a fantastic idea. So far, we have been boot-strapping it, let’s look at getting some proper financial assistance. I am sure there are a lot of people or maybe even other organizations that are looking to make a strategic investment if we offer fair value for their money.

Piyush: Absolutely and the Acid Test Ratio will be if we can turn a big profit immediately so that in the next investor meet, we don’t have to do any Window dressing

Vishaal: True, if we boost our bottom line, we may be able to pay dividends immediately.

Piyush: Agreed. But we’re playing the long game here. All the ratios are improving, however slowly.  And it’s a bunch of geniuses running the show over there. I’m pretty confident things are going to work out nicely.

Recap:

Generate a healthy return: To create a good profit for a business. So, if your business is making a profit, you say “Generating a healthy return”.

Grow it more aggressively: To expand a business or part of a business very quickly. So, if looking at expanding either your business or a section of your business, using this term will make it sound much more classy.

Decrease Overheads: Business costs NOT related to direct labor or materials. Basically, fixed costs like advertising, insurance, legal fees, rent, repairs, taxes, telephone bills, travel expenditures, and utilities.

Scale up: To increase in size or number. Usually I have heard the term “Expanding”, however, Scale up is a more senior manager level vocabulary word to use.

Business Valuation: Carefully calculated value of a business. This term is used when the actual value of the business is calculated and not just a ballpark figure. Using a term like this will show that you are careful and calculated when giving figures.

Crowd funding: The practice of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large number of people who each contribute a relatively small amount, typically via the Internet.

Boot-strapping: A situation in which an entrepreneur or company has very little capital to work with. You see this a lot in startups, where founders use personal finances.

Strategic investment: A strategic investment is a transaction that is closely related to joint ventures. In strategic investments, one company makes an investment in another. These two companies enter into an agreement that are designed to serve shared business goals.

Offer fair value: Fair value is the sale price agreed upon by a willing buyer and seller, assuming both parties enter the transaction freely and knowledgeable.

Acid Test Ratio: This ratio compares the amount of cash + marketable securities + accounts receivable to the amount of current liabilities. Basically, it shows you how much money you have close to hand.

As a bonus, here are 2 more business English phrases that all you finance professionals MUST use

Boost the bottom line: This term means to increase profits, it is a very classy phrase to use and will certainly catch the eye of everyone listening.

Pay dividends: To give a share of the company’s profits to its shareholders. Most of the time, I have heard the term “Distributed to the shareholders”, using this term will make you sound more like a CFO!

10 Business English Phrases for Customer Service

00:0000:00

Vishaal: Hello, ABC, Inc. Vishaal speaking. 

Piyush: Yes, hello. I have a question about my bill.

(Silence on the other end of the line)

Piyush: Hello? Are you still there?

Vishaal: Yes, but I don’t deal with that. I am transferring you to the billing department.

It is not a crime to be new on the job or to get a call that you do not know how to handle. It is part of the job. However, just knowing the right words to use can make all the difference in such situations. Remember the negative customer service experience above? Well, below is how the call service representative could have handled the call in a way that showed empathy – which means being in the other person’s shoes and dealing with the situation accordingly.

Vishaal: Hello, ABC, Inc. Vishaal speaking. How can I help you today?

Piyush: Yes, hello. I have a question about my bill.

Vishaal: It sounds like you need the billing department. I’ll transfer you to that number. Please stay on the line.

Piyush: Really. You have to transfer me? I’ve been on hold for the last 30 minutes. I followed all of your prompts to talk to you and now you’re telling me that you won’t help me?

Vishaal: I understand how frustrating that can be—let’s see how we can work this out. We can work together to answer your questions, but only if we can discuss the matter calmly.

Piyush: Of course. You see, here’s what happened, I have been overcharged for this month, there are some charges that should not be there.

Vishaal: I see. I’m going to have to consult with my manager. May I place your call on hold? I’ll be back with you soon—in 2 or 3 minutes max.

Piyush: Okay. Thank you

Vishaal: Thank you for holding. Here’s the answer to your question

Recap:

How can I help you today: Customers want the opportunity to explain in detail what they want and need. By asking how you can help, you begin the dialogue on a positive note. And by using an open-ended question, you invite discussion.

It sounds like you need: Usually, the call is simply sent to another department. By using this phrase, you have assured the customer that you have understood the problem and that you will try to help.

I’ll transfer you: When able, it is always desirable to transfer a customer rather than just giving another phone number. This shows that your company is taking care of the problem.

Please stay on the line: By saying this to the customer, you are assuring them that they don’t have to call back and someone will be with them shortly.

I understand how frustrating that can be: Most of the time customers are on the line for 30 minutes and have to follow prompts, this is quite annoying. Assure the customer that you know how it feels.

Work this out: This is a phrase that the customer wants to hear. Simply telling them that you will try is enough to calm them down.

Discuss the matter calmly: Most times customers are irritated and may shout on the phone. Staying calm and asking them to do the same help. This is a phrase you can use that will not offend the customer.

Consult with my manager: The most of the time we will simply put the customer on hold and discuss the issue. Giving a reason for the hold will let the customer know you are actually doing something about the problem.

May I place your call on hold?: The most common phrase is “Can I put your call on hold?” This is a better way of asking permission and being polite at the same time.

Thank you for holding: I have seen many times the representative going back to the customer by saying “Hello”.. Using this phrase is a way of telling the customer you remember he is on hold and you appreciate the fact that he was still online.
