Pictogramme Financial Management in 2019

At present, the Financial Expert no longer has to carry out control tasks alone, although these remain his responsibility, but his added value as a professional will be determined by his ability to analyze and solve problems, so their actions and competencies must be oriented to a greater involvement in the strategic management of the value of the company. The market demands more flexible financial accountants for two reasons: the responsibility of the Financial Expert within the different areas of the company is expanding and the dynamism of the economy forces them to be increasingly alert from the financial point of view.
