Dutch term or phrase: de financiele functie
Looks deceptively simple, but 'financial function' doesn't feel quite right. Interview about the role of the modern CFO for a business school magazine. This phrase comes up a lot so I'd like some better options.

"Er worden heel wat additionele eisen gesteld aan de moderne CFO. Een onderneming is niet bereid meer geld te besteden aan **de financiële functie** en toch verwacht zij er veel meer van. **De financiële functie** moet bv. bijdragen tot waardecreatie. Met evenveel geld meer doen betekent dat de CFO met hetzelfde budget meer waarde zal moeten creëren."

Wat moet **de financiële functie** volgens u bevatten?
"Ik zie drie pijlers: transacties verwerken, het bedrijf onder controle houden en waarde creëren ...**De financiële functie** moet ook instaan voor een sterke communicatie tussen de financiële afdeling en de andere departementen."

I'm either thinking too much or not enough ;-) Sometimes the obvious answer does work. Thanks, Jarry.
