The CFO Survey 2016   

Resilience in any climate

In this report, 349 CFOs from South Africa, Southern Africa, East Africa and West Africa have given their views on the cost of funding, risk factors, cash flow priorities, expansion plans and strategic intent.

In this report, 349 CFOs from South Africa, Southern Africa, East Africa and
West Africa have given their views on the cost of funding, risk factors, cash flow
priorities, expansion plans and strategic intent.

Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe make up the
Southern Africa response group. Feedback from CFOs in South Africa are
accumulated in a separate South Africa response group as they numbered 146
compared to 141 in the rest of Southern Africa and we felt this may skew the
results significantly.

Input was gleaned from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia for the East
Africa response group and feedback from CFOs in Nigeria and Ghana make up
the responses in respect of the West Africa response group. The research was
conducted over a six-week period in May and June 2016, in the lead up to local
elections in South Africa and Britain’s decision to exit the European Union.

We hope the survey delivers useful insights and information to our valued
clients and readers. As an integrated African firm, we are committed to
providing CFOs with information and support that will give them the edge when
it comes to making informed decisions and addressing thorny issues in their
daily work lives.
