A recent piece of research into the dangers posed by technology found accountants were in extreme threat of having their livelihood taken away or at least undermined by tech.

Finance directors, on the other hand, were considered to be in a much better position- at the other end of the spectrum- by the US-based findings.

The researchers felt  new technologies such as AI and robotics would serve well and empower those running finance.

Certainly with the tech-enabled business model, many FDs are working to, it is possible to see that argument being made effectively.
