Looking to the future

PA Consulting’s Richard Khaldi, water specialist, is quoted in an article in Utility Week on utility firms navigating a tighter financial environment. 

The article explains that CFOs and financial directors will have difficult choices to make about what investments they make and how they can modernise. 

Richard discusses the difficult choices: “Operational leaders in water business will be looking for increased investment to maintain and improve networks, while treasury colleagues will be seeking further efficiencies to manage shareholder expectation. 

“In our view it will be the quality of decision-making that is the difference between success and failure. With more reliance than ever before on the operational side of businesses generating returns, investment decisions will take on a new criticality and the CFO must have confidence in the processes that support those decision.”
