4 Key Trends in the Role of the Modern Finance Leader

by Dun & Bradstreet

91% of finance professionals agree that their role has become more challenging over the past three years.

The role of the finance leader is evolving. More and more, finance leaders find themselves alongside business leaders at the heart of the organisation — not just monitoring and reporting on revenue, but actively seeking out opportunities to grow it. 

To learn more about the role of the modern finance leader, Dun & Bradstreet gathered views from 200 CFOs and financial directors from across the UK, exploring everything from the roles they perform, to the issues that cause them concern. The results were decisive, providing a clear indication not only as to the mindset of the modern finance leader, but the potential impact that the evolution of their roles could have on the wider business.

4 Trends Uncovered from the Study:

  1. Great Expectations – The face of finance is changing at a rapid pace.
  2. Under Pressure – Finance leaders are pressured to do more with less.
  3. Smarter Decisions – Finance leaders must fuel growth with data.
  4. High Risk-Finance – leaders face the danger of conflicting priorities.
