CFO Journal from The Wall Street Journal
Deloitte writes and compiles a regular stream of CFO-centric content and timely features - research, topical digests, perspectives, insights, and technical analysis - which appear in a separate module of CFO Journal, an online publication from The Wall Street Journal.
What's keeping CFOs up at night?
In 2012, when we published the first "What is keeping CFOs up at night?," the main takeaway was that we were living in interesting and volatile times. Fast-forward to 2014 and the same can be said for today, although some of the drivers certainly differ.
While the economic landscape may be (thankfully) tamer, the pressures on finance chiefs and their companies to perform continue to mount. Some, such as regulatory uncertainty, are ongoing, while others, such as data security have quickly come to the fore.
In this CFO Insights, we share a list of current concerns gleaned from our regional CFO Forums, which number more than 100, our 450+ CFO Transition Lab sessions, and our CFO Signals survey, which quarterly takes the pulse of large company North American CFOs. Individually, each concern signifies an area that demands finance leadership; taken together they illustrate just how integral finance is to the day-to-day operation of any organization.
