Turning global risk into opportunity: Key priorities for CFOs 

This report examines the findings of a KPMG survey conducted in December 2011 of 350 senior financial executives at leading global retailers, from food and drink, consumer goods and manufacturing companies. It highlights the strategies finance leaders are using to help their businesses navigate turbulent environments while continuing to achieve growth.

The report also features a series of in-depth interviews with the CFOs at Tiffany & Co., Dollar General, Fonterra, Metcash, Coop Lombardia and Aurora Fashions.

Some key findings of the report include:


  • Nearly half of companies identify US and Canada as the markets with the most promise for near-term growth
  • Companies with higher performance are more likely to have an emerging markets strategy
  • CFOs see mobile commerce and cutting-edge technology as a driver of sales
  • Sustainable practices continue to evolve as more than half of CFOs see the positive impact on operating costs
