EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from French financier.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

financier (plural financiers)

  1. A person who, as a profession, profits from large financial transactions.
    • 2013 June 22, “Engineers of a different kind”, in The Economist, volume 407, number 8841, page 70:
      Private-equity nabobs bristle at being dubbed mere financiers. Piling debt onto companies’ balance-sheets is only a small part of what leveraged buy-outs are about, they insist. Improving the workings of the businesses they take over is just as core to their calling, if not more so. Much of their pleading is public-relations bluster.
  2. A company that does the same.
  3. One charged with the administration of finance; an officer who administers the public revenue; a treasurer.
    (Can we find and add a quotation of Burke to this entry?)
  4. A light, spongy teacake, usually based on almond flour or flavoring.
  5. A traditional French (Ragoût a la Financière) or Piemontese (Finanziera alla piemontese) rich sauce or ragout, made with coxcomb, wattles, cock's testicles, chicken livers and a variety of other ingredients.
