  Article Summary  
When high levels of economic uncertainty occur, it is beneficial to run “what if?” scenarios to gain an understanding of how various outcomes can impact your business.

“What if?” planning for tax reform, interest rates, healthcare costs and the stock market drives better decisions when facing uncertainties.

For example, conducting a “what if?” exercise on potential interest rate hikes will help you better understand and plan capital acquisition strategies.

A CFO services professional is a valuable resource for conducting “what if?” exercises and interpreting data outcomes to support better planning and improved decision making.
