The Siera Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for finance leaders of prominent companies in Singapore

The changing role of the CFO

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 include:

  • How can the modern CFO adapt and transform their financial organization to remain relevant to the newly emerging expectations?
  • Which new and emerging technologies are playing a part in enabling this paradigm shift so the CFO and his team can focus on more strategic objectives and value-add to the business?
  • What risks should the modern CFO be most concerned about?
