What We'll Cover...

Gone are the days where the CFO simply manages the preparation of financial statements for the organization. Now, more than ever, CFOs are responsible for other operational parts of the organization, including risk management.

We also explore common insurance terms and commercial insurance policies.

  • Distinguish between risk control and risk financing

  • Describe the key terms of your insurance policy
