Financial Officer

A competent and professional Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and finance function delivers significant value to the company. The ability to foresee the consequences of strategic decisions is a critical capacity, whether it comes to capitalization, investments, or operations.

Solid forecasts and scenario analyses outline the management’s room for maneuver. A modern finance function contributes actively to the company’s development and important strategic discussions. How should we plan our finances and investments? How can we actively improve the company’s profitability and ensure top line growth? A modern CFO must have the ability and capacity to understand the business as a whole and be able to contribute to improvements based on these recognitions.

A good CFO is often the CEO’s right hand, and at the same time actively contributes to the board room and in dialogue with the owners. Several owners place particularly high demands on the CFO and the finance function of the company and want solid-line reporting with the CFO, and not just with the CEO.

The finance function must also deliver solid accounting, reporting and compliance with regulatory requirements. This is especially true for companies that are listed on the stock exchange.
