Advises and reports on key performance drivers to senior leadership.

What We Do

The Finance Division partners with firm and divisional leadership to understand and manage risks and create solutions through quantitative analysis, projecting and forecasting. We are responsible for firmwide business planning and transformation initiatives. The business planning function collaborates with groups across the firm to develop and manage the firm’s forward looking strategic and financial plans, including the firm’s P&L and financial resources. We identify Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”) and measure the firm’s performance against these metrics. The Finance division is also charged with executing initiatives to transform, streamline and innovate business processes across the firm. These initiatives focus on the availability and reliability of financial information for internal stakeholders.
