The CA magazine: December 2016/January 2017
Robert Outram, Editor of The CA, rounds up what's inside the December/January issue of the magazine.
Ricky Munday CA, who features on the cover of The CA’s December/January issue, is director of corporate services with the British Antarctic Survey.
As well as helping to support the UK’s scientific work and expeditions in the Antarctic, Ricky is no stranger to adventure himself, having climbed some of the highest and most dangerous mountains in the world and worked on aid projects from Haiti to Sudan and Pakistan. In this issue, find out what drives this motivated CA and read about his next project – to reach the summit of Everest.
Also in the latest issue are the results of The CA Salary Survey. Based on a record response rate from ICAS members, this year’s survey includes average pay rates for key roles in industry and practice, and also charts the impact of this year’s political and economic upheavals on pay and conditions within the accountancy profession.
In our feature on professional development we examine the pros and cons of the MBA route, and its alternatives.
The CA’s Look Ahead to 2017 suggests what may be the key issues and turning points for next year in the world’s economy, and for the accountancy profession in particular. And in our wealth management feature, we tackle the question: when returns from conventional investment are so low, how should your high net worth individuals strike the right balance between risk and reward?
This issue also includes Donald Drysdale’s analysis of chancellor Philip Hammond’s first – and last – Autumn Statement.
Finally, the annual Who’s Who in Corporate Finance supplement lists the key players in the corporate finance sector, and includes an overview of how 2016 has been for the dealmakers.
