For high growth firms with aggressive plans, expansion overseas is no longer a choice – it’s an essential part of your game plan. And with New York City having the most (355) fast growth companies in the latest Inc. 5000 report, it’s easy to see why local companies with a global focus are seeing growth rates of 1000’s of percent, rather than 100’s.



But growth is not all plain sailing. Growing pains are felt in many areas – domestic and international regulations, tax codes, language barriers, third-party risk. Plus, the exponential increase in transactions. The list is long. Add into that a period of political and economic uncertainty – it means your strategy may have to be redesigned overnight.



It’s no surprise that 47% of CFO’s feel unprepared for expansion [Aberdeen Group]. Winning and losing in 2018 is going to be about fast growth with the agility to pivot where necessary. Another cornerstone of your fast growth strategy will also need to be managing the escalating transactions efficiently. Join us to discussion three key questions:




  • What are business leaders prioritising in 2018 to ensure successful expansion? 
  • What is the best approach to handling the rapid increase in transactions? 
  • What options exist to manage the increasing complexity of international trade?
