The Freya Dinner

A dinner discussion on the future of corporate spending

Commercial Cards: The Future of Corporate Spending


Recent economic changes, coupled with changes in the operating models of all stakeholders, finical institutions, suppliers/merchants and organisations are driving the increasing adoption of commercial cards globally.

Yet despite this, a lot of companies, especially in Malaysia, are slow to issue corporate cards across the board and reserve the privilege for top management. We will be discussing:

  • How does Malaysia compare to others in terms of corporate card adoption?
  • What kind of payments are corporate cards most used for?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of issuing corporate cards across the entire workforce?
  • What risk management steps must a company take to protect themselves from card misuse?
