Global CFO Survey

Global CFO Survey
KPMG International's annual survey provides insights from CFOs and other senior finance executives of organisations worldwide.

Transforming Finance: Challenges and breakthrough solutions for CFOs 

Transforming Finance is KPMG’s response to the issues highlighted in A New Role for New Times – a survey of almost 450 senior finance executives from large companies in North America, Europe, and Asia to discover their views on the changing role of the corporate finance function and their aspirations for the future.

Transforming Finance brings together insights from senior practitioners within KPMG’s Financial Management practice, focusing on the practical matters that Chief Financial Officers need to consider when they are planning the future of their departments.


It draws on case studies covering public and private sector organisations to offer a blueprint for successful transformation.


Key insights

  • The finance function’s contribution to business strategy has grown and is expected to increase substantially in future.
  • Finance professionals are increasingly called upon to provide high-quality, reliable analysis of the financial implications of business decisions made by the management.
  • To meet new challenges, finance functions require a new combination of skills, a new organisational scope, and an analytical mind-set that will provide support to business decision-making in the next half-decade.
  • Resources are generally available to help drive the necessary change.
