11th Asian Insurance CFO Summit 2017

Jun 5-7, 2017, Hong Kong

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?

Digital Wealth Asia 2017

Nov 9, 2017, Hong Kong


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.
