The Global CFO Survey 2021

Our annual survey of CFOs and their management teams is now in its 5th year. Our last report was undertaken immediately prior to the onset of the global pandemic. This paper seeks to engage with finance leaders expectations for their functions both alongside and after COVID-19.

The key message from our findings are therefore two-fold – firstly, CFOs expect the impacts of the pandemic in the way they execute their work to be long lasting but secondly, supporting these new working habits will require long term thinking & largescale investment that will outlast the most acute phase of the pandemic itself. With all this in mind it may be unsurprising that CFOs told us that when hiring this year, leaders with certified change management qualifications would be more appealing to them than those with MBAs.
