Finance and Accounting Outsourcing (FAO) 

The global multi-process Finance and Accounting Outsourcing (FAO) market continued to grow at a steady rate of 11-13% in 2022 and is expected to continue this growth trajectory for the next three years. Surging inflation, the recessionary environment, and geopolitical instability, coupled with the volatility that the pandemic left the enterprises in, have increased enterprises’ openness to leverage third-party service provider support for their finance functions. The strategic focus of service providers is becoming more elevated as they emphasize upstream F&A operations alongside routine tasks. This change underlines how corporations are realizing the strategic value of F&A. At the same time, there is a growing focus on non-traditional F&A areas, including risk management, compliance, sustainability, and data & analytics. Notably, cognitive technologies have moved from pilot stages to widespread usage, denoting a considerable change in the approach to and execution of F&A activities. Advisory services are becoming prominent, with service providers supporting enterprises to successfully navigate through complex financial environments. These trends are driving incremental changes in the commercial construct of FAO deals, indicating an evolving and value-driven industry landscape.
