Rising regulatory pressures have intensified the fiduciary responsibilities of today’s CFO while at the same time, competitive pressures have created demand for new, transformational leadership traits.  Chief Legal Officers are working more closely with business leaders to support growth while navigating an increasingly complex legal environment.

Cornerstone International Group recognizes this key shift with a Practice Group that not only represents a thorough understanding of these changing requirements but also of the increasing emphasis on the compliance function in financial services.

Compliance reports sometimes as a direct report to the Board and at other times as a report to the GC, although with direct access to the Board. Notably in asset management and insurance, the compliance function is being divorced from its historical home in Legal to a distinct entity under the Chief Compliance Officer (CCO).

More pro-active expectations of the CCO have led to more external searches, which our Finance and Legal Practice Group are well positioned to deliver.

Our Practice draws upon senior practitioners in 35 countries around the world. Members of Cornerstone International Group are owner-managers of their firms and established in their local and regional markets. They understand the importance of focused, personal attention to each specific client challenge, while benefitting from the exchange of best practices among peers.

Members of the Finance and Legal practice have experience in evaluating and assessing financial talent at the executive level and helping clients to identify the right fit for their organization.
