Finance Strategy is an approach for the planned development of the Finance function based on a clearly defined vision, strategy and roadmap. It helps to build on insights from business context, stakeholder expectations and own performance & capabilities to focus on opportunities that create value. At its foundation, a business strategy is really a financial strategy. Your company’s assets, cash flow and liabilities are involved in basically every business decision. A business strategy must examine current business income, whether outside financing is needed, a schedule for when funding can be attained, current cash flow position and taxes paid annually. Your funding objectives and how these relate to your mission is key when developing a business strategy. In other words, it can be hard to create a business strategy without a financial strategy.
