The Finance Leaders’ Roundtable

An exclusive breakfast discussion for CFOs and finance leaders from Malaysia

The Modern Finance Leader: Navigating risk in the Digital Era


The job description of the modern finance leader is rapidly evolving. While their primary responsibilities still hinge upon critical tasks, such as accurate financial reporting to stakeholders, economic strategy and forecasting, as well as determining appropriate capital structure, they must now add yet another item to their list of duties: risk management.

Identifying and proactively addressing threats to business strategy demands unique skill sets of the finance function: It requires financial leaders to complete routine tasks while also keeping one eye on the revolving door of technology trends, security threats, and regulatory hurdles.

  • How should risk management be organized to deliver effectively?
  • How can transformation be delivered through digitization and ecosystems?
  • How does the modern finance leader cope with the evolving risks in this modern age?
