An interview with Peter Currie is presented. When asked if the increased risk of the new regulatory environment has hurt the ability of organizations to attract top employees, Currie notes that some employees have become more cautious. When asked what the impact has been on Chief Financial Officers (CFOs), Currie notes that the changes essentially give the CFO a very meaningful impact on their company. When asked if he thinks CFOs will be more risk-averse, Currie says, in the short term, yes.
