Expectations of the Modern CFO

The role of the modern CFO has grown far beyond the standard of yore. Executive teams are demanding more from their finance unit, in the interest of creating beneficial relationships with management teams, shareholders, and regulators. 

No longer are executives satisfied with the ‘number crunching’ finance officer. The role has been redefined, requiring a CFO to wear many hats: not only are they a business partner and an astute financial advisor, but also a visionary, adept communicator, and an expert in creating value for the company. 

Specifically, finance officers need to: 
1. Guarantee accurate and responsible reporting 
2. Effectively communicate with internal and external stakeholders 
3. Manage risk and compliance 
4. Advise the management team on strategic and operational issues 
5. Ensure strategic use of company capital 

In addition to the above, a CFO must effectively execute the company’s strategic plan and work towards achieving the company’s goals. It can be difficult to find a CFO that will fulfil all these expectations. In light of the growing responsibility of the CFO, there is high demand for premiere outsourced accounting. That’s where we come in.

About PikoHANA

Matt Foley started PikoHANA because… well, because he was tired of the crap level of service offered by corporate services providers in Asia!

After 20 years as a CFO in stock listed companies in the US, HK and Singapore, Matt is now helping small and medium businesses. 

Unsurprisingly, what most people love about PikoHANA is the fast response time (try us!) and precision.
