RELATED READING

Process Improvement for Effective Budgeting and Financial Reporting provides financial managers with a compelling blueprint for increasing efficiency and eliminating waste of time and energy. Four operational experts lay out an 80/20 plan-improving 80% of processes in 20% of the time it would take to improve 100%-and explain a Business Process Improvement (BPI) plan.

The book addresses the current challenges faced by asset managers. The focus is mainly on the operational aspects of the global asset management industry: its costs and its productivity. In preparing for the uncertainties of the short-term as well as for the long-term growth opportunities, each investment management institution must focus on its cost effectiveness while being as productive as possible. A renewed focus must be set on fundamental disciplines such as risk and cost management.
