The Hundred Group
is a group of British finance directors
), operating as the unofficial mouthpiece of the finance function of the FTSE-100
- a voice that carries considerable resonance in business
. The organisation
shares many attributes of a somewhat secretive gentlemans club
, although it has raised its profile to tackle the British government
on high-profile issues such as double taxation
and the euro
, attracting column inches in the press as a consequence.
Objectives of the Hundred Group
The key driver for the group is lobbying
on behalf of FDs of the UK FTSE-100. The Hundred Group only meets to discuss specific issues; it aims to comment and offer advice on issues where it feels UK
government policy is misguided. It exists to pool experience and to continue to shape the changing role of the finance director.
The main purpose of The Hundred Group is to provide a forum for discussion and to make contributions and representations on issues of importance for financial management. Members are actively involved to ensure that the views of users and preparers of accounts are fully understood. Submissions are made to Government and other organisations highlighting the practical implications of existing financial procedures, related legislation and proposed changes.
