FP&A Trends Group is a high-profile thinktank whose mission is to identify and share the latest trends and best practices in modern Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A). UK-based but highly international in nature, we are a one-stop-shop for all things FP&A.
We have both advisory and research dimensions, and our website is one of the leading educational resources for FP&A today. Through our events and digital content, we pursue continuous discussion, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing between practitioners. We believe that this is the ideal way to learn and develop in today’s dynamic environment.
Here are the key elements of what we do:
- International FP&A Board
The International FP&A Board was created to answer a question many in the field have asked themselves: “How are other practitioners doing it?” It is a unique community of senior finance professionals, in which our 5000+ members can meet their peers in a creative, collaborative, non-competitive environment.
Unique in its global reach, there are now FP&A Board chapters in 27 cities of 16 countries around the world, and we are continually establishing new ones. Although currently digital in format, we will be returning to face-to-face Board meetings soon.
