The Kaia Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for Senior Finance Leaders of multinational firms in Singapore

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.

Clearly, things are changing but how can the modern CFO adapt and transform their financial organization to remain relevant to the newly emerging expectations?

We will be discussing topical issues relevant for CFOs of prominent firms based in Singapore. Topics will include:

  • The changing perception of the role of the modern CFO
  • The CFO as a technology evangelist
  • The slowdown in emerging markets (particularly in Asia) and the role of the CFO
  • The importance of macro-economic management
