The role of Chief Financial Officer
A Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is a director-level role responsible for managing the financial aspects of a company. Their role encompasses financial planning, risk management, record-keeping, and strategic decision-making. CFOs analyze financial data to guide the organization’s fiscal strategy, including budgeting, forecasting, and long-term financial planning.

Risk management is a critical aspect, involving the identification and mitigation of financial risks to safeguard the company’s financial health.

Capital allocation, optimizing the use of financial resources for maximum returns, falls within their purview. In fundraising efforts, CFOs play a crucial role in interactions with investors and financial institutions.
