Against a backdrop of geo-political instability and economic uncertainty, in 2017, the CFO will be tested as never before. With finalization of the international accounting standard for insurance companies, many insurers will be starting a finance transformation journey. In a trading world likely to change dramatically under the new Trump administration and with the ever-increasing threat of a new generation of cyber criminals, the risk universe is expanding and unravelling at an unprecedented rate.
At the apex of their organization, with influence across multiple business domains, CFOs must predict how the landscape, regulations and technology will change – and continue to walk at the CEO’s side to support strategy. But steering the business in the right direction will also require the CFO to go back to basics. In the current era of rapid, unpredictable change, protecting the bottom line demands core financial skills.
At the 11th CFO Summit, after a decade where the CFO’s role has expanded to meet business demand, we ask: What are the financial ‘basics’ in a disruptive world? How do CFO’s prioritize the allocation of resources to assess risk? What are the technical requirements in the IFRS 17 era? What is the role of finance in supporting digital and disruptive innovation? What new skills are needed? How do you set metrics to achieve sustainable growth in a time of monumental change?

Financial institutions of all types continue to re-assess and re-tune their strategies and engagement of all kinds of technology. And our ambition is to create unique thought-leadership from the most influential participants in the wealth management community to drive this further.
Amid all the hype and talk among banks about them looking to enhance their digital propositions and offer clients more via these channels, they need to act if they want to address the real challenges they still face.
These include, among many: compliance obligations, creating a compelling client experience, dealing with the data challenge, and essentially being relevant to clients – both the current and next generation.
But while the demand for digital wealth management is growing among Asian investors, many traditional players are struggling to respond.
Catering to different needs and tastes is crucial to be able to provide something relevant and of value to clients.

The heady world of finance has been turned on its head in the decade since the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2007–8. Lehman Brothers, a leading investment bank, collapsed, its rival Bear Stearns was sold, and many others were so close to bankruptcy that only controversially generous bailout packages could save them. As familiar names from the banking world struggled, China stepped into the limelight, becoming the world’s biggest source of capital. Today four of the world’s top five banks are Chinese. Tech giants such as Apple, Amazon and Facebook have become the most valuable companies and attract the best talent. Why suit up for Goldman Sachs when you could wear flip-flops and t-shirts at Facebook? Financial technology (fintech) companies, from Ant Financial in China to Square in the United States, have broken into the consumer-banking space like a wrecking ball.
What will the next ten years have in store for Asia’s financial institutions? How has the shape of the financial-services sector changed in the last decade? Can regulators and traditional companies keep pace with the evolution? How will new technologies, from artificial intelligence (AI) to blockchains, alter the financial ecosystem further? And in the shadow of the GFC’s ten-year anniversary, what have the big banks learned that could help them avoid future catastrophes?
Finance Disrupted 2018 will convene regulators, banking leaders, technologists, entrepreneurs and economists to discuss the future of banking in Asia and whether the sector is prepared to identify and prevent future crises.

Seen as the next frontier technology with the promise of greater speed, efficiency, compliance and cost savings, many organisations are actively investing in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to refocus organisational resources and workforce on value-added services.
Yet, many early adopters in North Asia face challenges in getting started; from selecting the right processes, vendor selection to defining appropriate operating and governance models. Advanced players who are interested to roll out RPA on an enterprise-wide scale are also uncertain on the best deployment strategy.
Building on the two exponentially successful RPA Summits in Singapore in 2017, we have rolled out the RPA North Asia Summit to examine RPA’s transformational impact to improve service delivery, enhance productivity & reduce costs, across Greater China, South Korea and Japan.

Technology-enabled innovation in financial services (fintech) is developing rapidly, presenting opportunities for financial inclusion and risks to financial stability that should concern policy makers and regulators. Fintech is reshaping certain areas of financial services and weakening the profitability of banking. Policy makers need to assess the adequacy of their regulatory frameworks, as the adoption of fintech increases, to harness its benefits while mitigating risks to financial stability. It is also important to understand how the business models of existing financial institutions and the market structure are changing in response to these developments.
The conference will tackle:
- how fintech, including crypto currency, digital payment, etc., would affect financial stability and figure out policies that can help to moderate such instability;
- how big data and artificial intelligence change the provision of financial services and its implications for financial stability;
- how fintech reshapes the financial sector and the potential challenges for the existing regulatory frameworks; and
- how to leverage regulatory technology to promote financial stability.
