According to newly released research 81% of chief financial officers of multinational companies would like to see greater transparency in the expertise of banks and financial advisors. Research commissioned by The Global CFO, the one-stop financial intelligence resource for corporate decision makers, indicates that there is a need for objective information on these advisers along with their credentials, in one place online.There is no doubt that demand for greater financial services transparency is fuelled by the fact that nearly one third (31%) of multinational companies anticipate 2001 being a busier year for mergers, acquisitions or fund raising than 2000, while a further 31% expect corporate activity to remain at the same high levels of 2000.
With this increased activity, more than half (56%) of finance directors expect to have to manage relationships with an increasing roster of professional advisers over the next three years, as companies demand specialists in key areas.To help co-ordinate and manage these relationships, http://www.theglobalcfo.com launched with more than 25 leading financial data sources which provide financial officers around the world with free and easy access to independent intelligence on corporate finance, capital markets and corporate banking issues.
Etienne Deshormes, Chief Executive of The Global CFO, commented: As 2001 looks set to be a year of continuing and increased activity, finance decision makers need to cut down on the time spent researching potential financial service providers. The Internet is the perfect delivery mechanism for such information and we are pleased to offer a service that is so clearly in demand.
