What challenges are faced by CFOs in West Africa and the rest of Africa?
In this report, 349 CFOs from South Africa, Southern Africa, East Africa and West Africa have given their views on the cost of funding, risk factors, cash flow priorities, expansion plans and strategic intent.
Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe make up the Southern Africa response group. Feedback from CFOs in South Africa are accumulated in a separate South Africa response group as they numbered 146 compared to 141 in the rest of Southern Africa and we felt this may skew the results significantly.
Input was gleaned from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia for the East Africa response group and feedback from CFOs in Nigeria and Ghana make up the responses in respect of the West Africa response group. The research was conducted over a six-week period in May and June 2016, in the lead up to local elections in South Africa and Britain’s decision to exit the European Union. See more about our respondents on page 23.
We hope the survey delivers useful insights and information to our valued clients and readers. As an integrated African firm, we are committed to providing CFOs with information and support that will give them the edge when it comes to making informed decisions and addressing thorny issues in their daily work lives.
