CFO of the Future
As Panvestors, we believe that companies that respect and target Human, Social and Environmental capital as much as Financial capital will become "Resilient". They treat all these forms of capital as “Assets” and not mere “Expenses”; incorporate them into their business models through innovation and organisational flexibility. These resilient companies, whilst contributing to sustainable development should also deliver solid financial returns and progress on all forms of capital over time.
