The study provides insights on the impact of financial management practices on the overall company performance and payment of financial liabilities to the government or other business entities along with identifying the key problems and barriers hindering successful development of modern enterprises.

The purpose of financial risk management is to minimize financial loss. The paper offers an overview of the factors that negatively affect a company’s financial performance and discusses the types of risks that inhibit company’s good performance and further growth. The study findings suggest the priority areas in financial risk management and discuss the risk management strategies by disclosing the types of company financial stabilization mechanisms (operational, tactical and strategic), along with presenting the methods for financial risk minimization as well as a financial toolkit to enhance the company’s risk management policies to prevent possible negative implications.
