LAHORE (PR) - The majority of Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) looking to appoint new staff for their businesses say they should ideally have both a breadth and depth of finance expertise and capabilities, a new report from ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) reveals.ACCA asked CFOs what was important to them when it comes to appointing newly qualified accountants and what skills enable them to grow their business, particularly since the financial crisis. The resulting report, The Complete Finance Professional: Why breadth and depth of finance capability matter in today’s finance function, outlines why broad-based finance qualifications remain valuable in economically turbulent times. Arif Masud Mirza, Head of ACCA Pakistan said: “ The environment in which finance professionals now work – one which is increasingly volatile, complex and competitive - requires them to have a broader range of finance skills - and this is certainly the case in Pakistan. Finance functions have to excel in a wide range of capabilities, including supporting businesses, managing risk, developing effective strategies for growth, driving financial insight and ensuring statutory and regulatory responsibilities are met.”
