FSN's Innovation in Financial Reporting Global Survey 2018 - How do CFOs justify investment when they get the job done?

17th October 2018

FSN’s Innovation in Financial Reporting Survey 2018 covers responses from than 616 senior finance professionals worldwide. 

Financial reporting has made little headway over the past year. CFOs and senior finance professionals still have to produce accurate and timely reports despite error-prone and poorly controlled spreadsheets, difficulty obtaining the right data and a relentless increase in the number of reports. 

And yet despite some very clear obstacles, 64% of survey respondents said they never miss a reporting deadline. By sheer effort of will, and often a mountain of overtime, finance professionals manage to produce the growing number of regulatory and management reports required of the business.






The research was conducted amongst the 51,000 members of the FSN Modern Finance Forum on Linkedin and represents one of the largest and most authoritative global surveys of its kind.

616 senior finance professionals responded to the survey covering 23 countries and 13 industry sectors.  Approximately half of the respondents were from organisations with more than 1,000 employees and a quater with more than 10,000 employees. 

The research was sponsored by BOARD InternationalCertent, FinancialForce
