Finance demystified: a guide for housing association board members and non-finance executives

In the context of the current business environment in the housing sector, board members’ responsibilities have never been more important – meaning it is vital to have a sound appreciation of the financial well-being of the housing association’s business.

15 October 2014

This publication has been written to help board members, and senior managers who aren’t finance experts, clarify financial information and enable them to perform their role more effectively. 

Each section features a brief commentary on the expected outcomes for board members after reading it, and in most sections, additional text specifically aimed at those with a higher level of knowledge of financial matters.

This book is part of the Board members resource pack.
