The Ellis Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for finance leaders of prominent firms based in Kuala Lumpur

Reassessing Financial Leadership in Light of Global Trends

The role of the CFO has broadened over the past decade. Beyond the traditional core responsibilities of financial reporting, audit and compliance, financial planning and treasury, most CFOs are playing key roles in asset/liability management and capital allocation as well as having a prime seat at the table when it comes to defining institutional strategies.

  • How can modern CFOs adapt and transform their financial organisation to remain relevant to the newly emerging expectations?
  • Which new and emerging technologies are playing a part in enabling this paradigm shift so that the CFO and his team can focus on more strategic objectives?
