Chief Operating Officers today are used to the fact that they have an expanding remit. Technological implementation, staying abreast of regulatory changes in new and existing markets, supporting business strategy and ensuring the investment function is provided for all come with the territory. Yet the pace of change is developing. Cybersecurity, which few COOs have expertise in, is increasingly important. Talent, required for very different functions feeding into the COO, is increasingly competitive, and getting diversity requires a deft hand. The pandemic has compounded the war for talent, pushing COOs to be flexible in how they manage the best. And options and therefore operational requirements of data and technology, continue to change.
