Webinar: What’s ahead for CFOs in financial services & insurance

Thu, 29th Oct 2020
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Little more than a year ago, CFOs worldwide would have had a keen sense of what kinds of decisions could tip the scales towards a safe investment or a risk, but 2020 certainly turned every possible decision into something of a gamble.

CFOs now need to understand the current, unpredictable business environment and its implications in order to make the right decisions for their business.

According to Sage's CFO 3.0 – Digital Transformation beyond Financial Management whitepaper, 67% of finance decision makers agree that their role is transforming from number cruncher to business strategist.

Whether they realise it or not, CFOs have a new mandate, to move beyond their traditional roles of analysing past performance, and lead organisations into the new frontier where they're gatekeepers to a vast amount of data and analytics made available through a newly connected and digitalised world.

"Armed with powerful data, the right tools to make accurate analysis and the backing of the business to make swift and responsible decisions, CFOs are poised to be agents for change," says Sage's APAC executive vice president Kerry Agiasotis.

Technology is an enabler, but the extent to which it transforms a business lies with those who are prepared to take the lead."

Join Sage and IBISWorld experts as they share their experiences and what the life of a CFO will look like going forward.

IBISWorld Australia senior industry analyst and team leader Tommy Wu and Sage Australia ERP product marketing manager Bruce Minty will take you through:

  • A macroeconomic update focusing on key indicators such as GDP, unemployment rate, consumer confidence and more
  • The impact of COVID-19 on the Financial Services and Insurance industry
  • The outlook for the industry including key success factors
  • The role of the Modern Financial Services CFO - a new breed of trailblazing finance leaders.
  • The key findings from the CFO 3.0 research conducted with senior finance leaders across a range of industries
