Ready to restart]]>Sat, 11 May 2013 06:30:25 GMThttp://www.en.stefanodenicolai.net/ilogen/how-confident-are-cfos-ready-to-restartMany argue that - in the middle of the crisis - the CFO is always ready to cost cutting and he/she is the last person which promotes investiments and risky initiatives.
The last April 2013 Deloitte released  a interesting survey concerning the prospects of CFOs for their business. It shows a fall in uncertainty and rising optimism in UK.
In particular, perceptions of economic and financial uncertainty have fallen to the lowest level since early 2010. CFOs' policies are progressively becoming less defensive, with less emphasis on cost cutting and cash, thus encouraging R&D and innovation. 
The study find that this has been driven by companies with strong overseas exposure which have become significantly more expansionary in the way they run their financial policies.
