March 2012 AFP Exchange


March 2012 AFP Exchange

The March issue examines payments and planning and the relationship between the two. Michael Hunstad, PhD, starts discussion with an article about lumpy cash flows—how treasury and finance professionals can forecast and account for payments that are irregularly timed and sized. “Even small uncertainties can lead to large forecast errors,” Hunstad writes. Elsewhere, the Association for Financial Professionals proudly launched its certification program for financial planning and analysis professionals. So-called FP&A experts are in demand, as is knowledge of this skill set. With its Certified Treasury Professional program as a guide, AFP is uniquely positioned to launch an FP&A certification track. More details will come at AFP’s Annual Conference in Miami this October.
