Risk-adjusted forecasting and planning
December 2012 – UK
Volatility has increasingly become the ‘new normal’. This is most starkly demonstrated by the recent and ongoing turbulence in the global economy, coupled with continued, rapid globalisation across many industries, and notably within the energy and resources sectors. Alongside these macroeconomic challenges, organisations are also under ever increasing pressure from shifting demand drivers from fast growing developing markets, increasing digitalisation and technological shifts and higher levels of stakeholder/investor scrutiny. In the face of this complexity and volatility, the ability of CFOs and finance functions to interpret, quantify, manage and leverage risk is more important now than perhaps ever before. Our recent insight Risk-adjusted forecasting and planning: Navigating the ‘new normal’ of increased volatility, considers the key challenges for CFOs and the steps they need to take in order to help position the company to protect and enhance value in volatile markets and environments.
