Learn the top concerns of CFOs today.

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.
