How do CFOs and Financial Directors keep on top of developments in the financial markets?

Claire Hogarth11/Apr/2016Currency Updates

You’re probably ‘risk rich’ but ‘time poor’. And keeping abreast of developments in financial markets to minimise the risk your business is exposed to can be a very time-consuming task.

What matters in a financial report

Traditional analysts churn out thousands of words of quality output but this is unlikely to meet senior executive needs. It’s not just that such reports are incompatible with a busy schedule, more importantly, the devil is not necessarily in the detail in respect of financial market risks.

Provided that you consider the major themes and trends and you’re aware of key economic events, it’s possible to make fully informed risk decisions without burying yourself in the detail.

How you get access to relevant market information

It’s macro-economic themes and geo-political developments that principally drive risk and therefore financial market movements.

To provide you with what you need to know, in a concise way, Ebury’s senior analysts and Bloomberg forecaster Enrique Diaz-Alvarez write daily Market Insights for finance professionals. They enable you to appraise market view and sentiment by looking at the balance of consensus forecasts as well as offering insights into major themes, trends and associated risks for businesses.
