UPDATE Sterling work by @ale and there are at present no Open Qs with this tag, so the issue is largely 'moot'.

There is one Closed Q that should disappear off WA within a fortnight.

Tag lacks a Usage guide and has 5 6 followers but is currently applied to 7 0 Open questions.

Other tags with "finance" in them: and (neither with Usage guides).

Regarding Shog9’s criteria for burnination, summarised as:

    - Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied?
    - Is it unambiguous?
    - Is the concept described even on-topic for the site?
    - Does the tag add any meaningful information to the post?
    - Does it mean the same thing in all common contexts?

IMO the As are, in order: No, No, No, No, No.

It is a topic with experts (eg see the SE sites: Personal Finance & Money, Quantitative Finance) but it appears usage has had little connection with either of those.

Would anyone care to speak in its defence in a trial for its life?

in the context of Web Application it's a meta-tag as it can't be used without any-other tag.
