Institute issues guidance for CFOs.

Corporate boards need to oversee strategy, performance and risk effectively to ensure that their organisations remain successful in the long term, according to a new report from the institute.

Based on the conclusions of a discussion held at a recent CIMA event, "The role of the CFO on the modern board" identifies four key tasks for CFOs: financial security; compliance and control; strategic direction; and building capability.

It states: "The CFO is the guardian of the integrity and rigour of all management information, both financial and non-financial, from inside and outside the organisation, across different time frames."

The report, which can be downloaded from, explores the CFO's key relationships throughout the organisation and also offers advice on how to make the optimum use of a board's time.
