?Embracing diversity critical for finance leaders?






In a globalised business environment, so the finance function is increasingly global new markets, new regulations, and new business demands. Mastering the technical requirements of operating across many countries is one challenge, but finance leaders and finance functions must also bring together finance personnel in different countries, different cultures, different working practices, different languages to work together to provide a consistent service to the business. Dealing with this huge cultural diversity and multi geographic delivery represents a huge challenge to finance leaders trying to drive world class finance functions. It has a significant bearing on the type of chief finance officer (CFO) businesses need at a global level they must be able to deal with these differences effectively and be able to leverage these differences positively for the business, she said. Brown said that one major aspect of the diversity challenge is gender diversity and that is why it is one of the focus of ACCA.

The Role of Finance May Be Changing, But the Route to the Top Remains the Same






Six different meds and shock therapy havent stopped her from talking to herself in public and staring off into space as she flashes back to events that have led to her mental and financial collapse. She turns up on the doorstep of the honky-tonk San Francisco walk-up where her sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins), a supermarket checker with two young kids and a boyfriend whos an auto mechanic (Bobby Cannavale), welcomes her with surprising diplomacy. Ginger and her ex-hubby Augie (Andrew Dice Clay) invested a $200,000 lottery win with Hal, and lost every penny through his Ponzi scheme. Augie is unforgiving, but Ginger would rather blame Hal.







12 Personal Finance Lessons, Broken Down, In Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine'






While 80% of FTSE Financial Directors continue to hold one or more accounting qualifications (and many of those that dont have an MBA or some other higher qualification typically relevant to their industry), it is evident that most still hold a qualification from one of the two bodies that are more orientated towards financial accounting rather than those that are more focused on management accounting. Despite the increasing focus on value creation, my guess is this is never going to change much even over the next twenty years because listed companies always need a head of finance who can tick all the traditional boxes of financing, M&A, compliance, reporting, taxation and investor relations. Such experience is undoubtedly best gained by spending part of ones career in an advisory role in one of the big accounting groups rather than diligently working away inside companies as a value-adding partner to ones peers, only to hit a glass ceiling when it comes to getting the senior position. Just isnt going to happen, is it?

So why were earnings in the Finance sector so hot? These two charts will tell you pretty much everything you need to know: (Improving credit quality is a good thing, but as a bank, I'd rather have strong loan growth and net interest margin expansion boosting my bottom line than simply taking a lower provision for loan losses... but I digress.) Mr. Mian also points out in his article that the Finance sector has reclaimed its leadership role in the S&P 500, as it now contributes a higher percentage of earnings than any other sector for the first time since the financial crisis.

Small Business Advisor Remind me when I share | Not you? Log out of Facebook How to remove this experience The Role of Finance May Be Changing, But the Route to the Top Remains the Same By Richard Barrett | Business 2 Community 10 hours ago Print The Role of Finance May Be Changing, But the Route to the Top Remains the SameYou can only join The 100 Group if you hold or have held the position of CFO in a UK company that is or was listed in the FTSE 100 and if they invite you. The members of this organization are the elite of their profession and certainly do some excellent work reviewing and advising on various impending regulation and the like. But after 20 years of hearing that the role of finance is shifting towards helping develop strategy and increasing partnering with the business, one would have thought that the qualifications, career paths, and origins of these finance leaders would have begun to show some signs of change.

India central bank allows non-bank Islamic finance firm











LEGAL CHALLENGE Last year, the RBI directed Kochi-based Alternative Investments and Credits Ltd (AICL) to stop its non-interest NBFC business almost a decade after the firm was launched. This prompted an ongoing legal challenge by AICL. "The grant of an NBFC licence should have an impact on the AICL proceedings and there are good chances that the matter may get settled soon," said Suprio Bose, Mumbai-based lawyer at Juris Corp, a law firm which previously represented AICL. "The event reflects a significant and welcome change in RBI's attitude towards sharia-based NBFCs and sets a precedent for others to follow suit." However, many analysts think that unless and until full-fledged Islamic banks are permitted in India, an Islamic finance sector will find it hard to develop. "I don't think there is going to be a rush for NBFC applications.

Trent Hamm The Simple Dollar is a blog for those of us who need both cents and sense: people fighting debt and bad spending habits while building a financially secure future and still affording a latte or two. Our busy lives are crazy enough without having to compare five hundred mutual funds we just want simple ways to manage our finances and save a little money.

In personal finance, nobody's perfect






Bankers, however, say revival of stalled projects will not spur credit growth immediately. "You have to understand that once the regulatory clearances come, it will take around six months to have some actual ground level movement," an executive director with a state-run bank said. "And banks will not disburse further until there is some development." Banks have so far disbursed 51,546 crore to the 20 identified big-ticket projects. Since April, the finance minister has held review meetings with bankers and promoters in all major cities on the issue.
