Our pledge on responsible leadership

Responsible leadership for us means delivering both for financial performance and broader societal goals. When advising our clients, we aim at PERFORMANCE, while taking care of PLANET and PEOPLE. Therefore, we help companies design viable and sustainable business models (BMs), and to decide where to invest and divest now, implying that necessary transformations come at cost.

Yet, we do not necessarily think of them as a trade-off between performance and sustainability, rather we seek optimization for both, when possible. We see actualization of transformation for sustainability and its progressing to companies’ “must haves” due to the following trends. 

Increasing number of investors who have added ESG factors in their investments analyses to mitigate risk
Inclusion of ESG initiatives and metrics in companies value propositions and BMs/ cost savings, less waste
Rising “voting with wallets” by consumers
Acceleration of governments (compliance), other regulators, and standards setters- on new regulation, taxing, and subsiding
B2B buyers and suppliers within value chains, or partners across ecosystems won’t do business with companies that ignore societal goals, due to their own risk mitigation and rating, compliance, as well as core values and impact.
Previous
Next

We believe that business should lead the way, thanks to its impact and footprint, as well as innovation capability. Otherwise, companies would not sustain performance due to exposure to risks of natural disasters, biodiversity losses, air, water, and land pollution, and so on. To come to solutions, we must innovate. Therefore, we advise leaders on how to develop new capabilities and the right context and culture for their people and innovations to thrive.

Yet, it works the opposite way too, companies cannot survive if failing to sustain earnings for their owners. Consequently, responsible leadership must commit to all stakeholders and balance existing businesses with new ones. This is how we help clients to create and sustain the future they want for themselves. 

QFS Current moment

QFS was founded as business and financial advisory company. We think that in process we have gained some maturity to expand former to include Organizational Health assessments, advisory around preparation for and adoption of Digital technologies, majorly as Automation of Finance function, BI, visualization, as well as ESG and Sustainability Transformations and Reporting.

These are hot themes and required changes businesses must pursue to stay relevant in 21st century. These changes are coupled with increasing complexity where we can make all much easier for you by joining our strengths.

In addition to the mentioned new services, our views around the partnerships have been evolved to embrace innovations and competing in ecosystems, think of them as network of several partnerships to incorporate partners from different industries, necessary to prosper nowadays. Companies used to compete in more or less well-defined ecosystems called industries where CEOs excelled on execution side.

Today to stay competitive implies innovation which requires joint commitments of partners across different industries, think of autonomous and electric vehicles for example, where you need to bring in capabilities originated in separate industries to come to joint desirable value proposition, profitable and sustainable business models. We see competing in ecosystems with new business models as rising trend, hence leadership and alignment (of internal ecosystems for external ecosystems), governance, negotiations, valuations have all of sudden become essential skills we can help you on, to survive and thrive.

For instance, negotiation skills have come to the forefront since in the partnerships (or ecosystems) there is no one single CEO or organizational designer who overpower others, consequently you need to be good in negotiating and we can advise you on these matters.

Since ecosystems consist of several partnerships, we have strengthened our capability to navigate through each of life cycle phases such as launching and structuring JVs and alliances, their governance, making them sustainable and ESG, valuations of partners’ stakes, minority rights, sourcing from parents, intellectual property (IP), restructuring and exit, and other issues you can face. 

Finance function trasformation

Beyond traditional tasks of finance function (which you can outsource to us) such as reporting, controlling and budgeting, we have extended our expertise to include automation (of finance function), to provide more strategic insights and to add dynamism and optionality with scenario planning and zero- based budgeting.

Post deal integration

In collaboration with our partners, we offer full end-to-end support and guidance to our clients throughout the transaction process. We supply advisory for post deal integration, which we see as the critical part of the process, for planned synergies to make happen.
