Can you find a good financial manager?

The first feature is that all work is done by a financial director or a manager who is responsible for coordinating the work of the department. The main responsibilities in this case include:

  • development and adoption of a business strategy;
  • management and control of work with resources; 
  • organization of work on marketing analysis;
  • setting assignments to subordinate employees. 

The responsibilities of financial analysts should be clearly defined. This also applies to analysts, economists, and other professionals involved in the team.

Most often, the functions in this case are distributed across different departments (tax planning, paperwork, financial reporting, etc.).
