The modern Chief Finance Officer is expected to fulfil an ever evolving and increasingly complex role, also known as the Four Faces of the CFO:
The demands that each of these roles place on the finance function is very different. Each requires differing capabilities and behaviours, and, potentially, different organisational structures to effectively support each of these roles. The CFO has the difficult task of bringing all of the different disciplines, people and processes together in a seamless finance function that cannot afford to leave any capability gaps.
At Deloitte, we advise finance leaders in both the private and public sectors on the complex financial and business challenges they face. We bring together an unrivalled set of services to support finance leaders to take decisions and to support any resulting change or transformation in their finance capability. The breadth of services combined with our ability to provide independent advice and the capability to support both strategy and delivery sets us apart in the market.
