New series: Financial services industry (FSI) controllership modernization

door fingerprint

Regulatory expectations for financial institutions are at an all-time high while the need for highly granular, timely, and correct financial information is increasing. These and other factors are forcing FSI controllership organizations to evaluate and modernize across people, process, and technology in order to meet the needs of a growing list of stakeholders both internally and externally. Fortunately for controllers, digital core and finance automation technologies are emerging that can help FSI controllers achieve greater speed and efficiency, while generating valuable insights—but this requires controllers to embrace the modern era and put on their strategy caps.

Our series on FSI Controllership Modernization will focus in on the possibilities of modernizing the controllership organization through strategic enhancements to the technology stack, while also evaluating how controllers can fundamentally re-evaluate, and in some instances, re-design their operating models and governance structures to keep up with the changing times.
