Top finance, community leaders provide guidance

This week’s CFO column on the News-Leader’s Community page provides a closer look at the importance of volunteer leadership to the CFO, particularly in the area of financial advisement, an important role filled by our 16-member Investment Advisory Board.

These members, representing firms and organizations from across the Ozarks, put their experience and impressive resumes to work for the CFO’s donors and agency partners. In tandem with investment consultant Prime Buchholz & Associates, the CFO’s investment portfolio has returned an average of 8.4 percent annually since the CFO’s total return policy took effect in 1994.

The CFO’s column runs every Tuesday, in rotation with other organizations on the News-Leader’s Community page, which is published daily. We appreciate this opportunity to share our work with News-Leader readers across the region.
