The Discussion: Visibility & Risk of International Expansion

Our recent survey found that 79% of 360° Club members find securing new sources of growth a critical strategic challenge. International Expansion brings with it new opportunities for your business and remains an attractive prospect to SMEs. The challenge of transferring a successful business model to overseas with minimal risk however, relies largely upon the CFO.

 

Expansion of any kind will bring an associated financial risk to the existing business. Yet, CFOs are putting more emphasis on expansion and fast-growth, with international expansion being high on their agenda. The central challenge for SMEs over the next 12 months will be to successfully expand internationally with only a finite amount of resources.

 

The role of the CFO – and finance leadership as a whole – is rapidly becoming a key driver of business value and CFOs need to ensure they continue to stay ahead, not only of internal strategic business insights but of wider globalisation trends. Emerging trends will help empower finance professionals to drive performance, better assess and manage risk, and drive corporate strategy and international expansion for their business.

 

The initial pains of starting the business are behind you but, to ensure that you continue to thrive you need to ensure that your organisation is 100% prepared for the challenge of international trade in order to succeed and maintain your fast-growth momentum.

 

In a world of accelerating growth;

 

  • How can CFOs maximise visibility whilst reducing risk?

 

  • How can you ensure your business processes are robust enough to adapt and control the speed of your growth?

 

  • What kinds of strategic goals should guide your plans as you look to expand your international presence?
