In this panel, the focus of how has the finance function changed over the years from technology oriented towards revenue and investment will be discussed. As the custodian of the whole P&L the CFO should be focusing not just on cost but also on revenue – in the medium to long term value creation can only come from building the topline as well as the bottom line so the modern CFO should have a keen eye on both. In an economy in which access to credit can be challenging and the financial health of the business is of paramount concern, investors and lenders are increasingly looking to the CFO to be involved in important decisions the company is making.
