What are the current challenges for the finance function?

Balance sheet and cash-flow management remain important in today’s interconnected world where revenue is generated in multiple currencies and across multiple jurisdictions or business areas. Finance professionals, regardless of title or focus, should always respect and understand the principles of good cash management and how important it is to the success of a business.

The development of specialisms within the finance function is making it harder to find well-rounded finance talent, no matter the organisation or the industry. There needs to be greater exposure to all areas of the business to produce a greater pipeline of more commercially minded finance professionals that will benefit the business in the long-term.

It’s vital that the finance team embed themselves within the whole business, especially in regards to decision support and financial control, ensuring there is clarity and commitment across the business underpinning commercial decisions from the bottom up and the top down.

CEOs will rely on their CFO and their finance function to create viable business cases backed up by measurable targets and ROI. Therefore, your finance function needs to be commercially orientated and understand what is happening across the entire business.

What type of finance talent do you need?

Finance professionals today need to be focused on more than just the numbers. They need to be able to play a central role in enabling the business to operate effectively, from getting involved in major technology projects to negotiating supplier contracts.

Individuals need to be commercially savvy and have demonstrable experience at successfully integrating their skills across different disciplines within the business.
