In 2019, activity slowed in developing and advanced economies, with trade tensions weighing on exports, industrial output, and capital spending. However, despite last year’s slow pace of global economic growth, Q4 2019 was exceptionally busy for our CFO Practice.
Due to UK economic uncertainty, many clients took urgent action – these tended to centre on transformation projects designed to reduce costs and simplify operational processes. For example, we saw an unprecedented number of mandates being signed off for interim CFOs with turnaround expertise. We also saw demand for Interim Business Transformation Directors able to support Leadership Teams in implementing cost reduction programmes whilst simultaneously supporting internal client comms/messaging.
