Together with the structure and approach of companies, the role of today’s CFO is evolving. Similar to other management positions over the past few years, this corporate function has extended beyond the core responsibilities of audit and compliance, financial reporting, treasury, planning and capital structure. Now we witness many CFOs playing a stronger role in portfolio management and capital allocation on a corporate level. It is not uncommon for CFOs to be voted more confident in communicating with investors or the board of directors due to their vast outlook across multiple levels of the company and valuable insight into its financial operations and objectives. An in-depth look at the chemistry of a millennial CFO reveals the following qualities as necessary prerequisites for successfully leading the company forward:
•Analytical Insight abilities
•Intelligent Risk Management
•Embracing and Executing Innovation
•Integrated Talent Management
•Management of Political Changes
