Opening Keynote: Hong Kong Economic Outlook: A Changing World and Changing Times

Uncertainty has become the new norm. Hong Kong’s economy grew at its fastest pace in six years in the first quarter of 2017. This was in sharp contrast to previous gloomy forecasts of tepid performance at the beginning of the year. Gross domestic product grew 4.3 per cent and the expansion in the economy was boosted by the buoyant stock market, increased trade, a hot property sector, robust employment and an encouraging global economic outlook. This augurs well for the coming days even though global political and economic situation remain uncertain.

What are the current global geo-political outlook and the risks that organizations need to be aware of: a vastly changing Chinese economy, its ripple effect on Hong Kong, the commodities slump, great uncertainty in Europe, changing political orders and policies in UK and USA, rising security risks worldwide and strains between east and west. What does it all mean and how can we expect it to change in the coming year and beyond?

Executive Dialogue: Emerging Business Opportunities in the New De-Globalized World

Fast-changing political dynamics are here to stay and will see dominating the world markets. Global economy faces a period of uncertainty marked not only by divergent monetary policies but also by rising economic nationalism. Against a backdrop of escalating technological change and markets faced with more questions than answers, there is increasing pressure on CFOs to have a relook at their portfolios, improve the top line position and rethink their appetite for risk.

Amidst all the ebbs and flows of global economy, where does the Hong Kong CFOs stand? What are the reasons to stay hopeful amid the challenges? How can they make the most from the improving economic dynamics of its trade partners? How are discerning CFOs capitalizing on opportunities while mitigating the risks imposed by the global and regional changes? How will HK businesses benefit from the One Belt One Road and Greater Bay Area initiates? The session aims to translate the external impact to internal performance, assess the opportunities and risk, examine the defense strategy in the face of financial anxiety and uncertainty.

CFO’s Data Opportunity – Utilizing Technology and Talent

In today’s digital world, CFOs have the opportunity to create a new opportunistic vision for the finance function – by adopting innovative new technologies, hiring and developing a new type of finance talent, and developing a data vision and strategy. The historical finance function typically was just that…historical. The evolving finance function, while still maintaining historical requirements, is now also a forward-looking and data driven organization, enabled by new tools and talents. Access to data, and how to appropriately utilize the vast amounts of data available to financial leaders, will be the difference between leaders and laggards.

Executive Discussion: Effective and Innovative Strategies to Deal with Currency Fluctuations

The US dollar, and therefore the Hong Kong dollar, has been volatile against other currencies, including the renminbi. Without strong exposure identification capabilities, companies may have limited transparency into earnings volatility caused by FX movements or be left with inaccurate data that could impact risk management decisions. The complexity of most multinational operations generates different forms of FX risk and the economic implications of these across a portfolio of businesses and currencies are not easily gauged.

  • How well-prepared are companies to handle the uncertainty over the movements of the Euro, British pound, Yen, renminbi and other Asian currencies against the dollar?
  • How can CFOs manage the risk of rapid swings in currency movements?
  • What are the proven best practices in managing FX fluctuations?

Which new skills are required for these new age CFO's?

  • A critical assessment of AI's resurgence in the 21st century

Executive Discussion

Countering Cyber Threats and Enhancing Data Security

The growing sophistication of cyber-attacks has made it clear that even corporations with savvy prevention and protection systems are vulnerable. Cyber security is not just an IT issue but instead a cross-functional concern for the digital enterprise that requires attentive executive and board-level surveillance. The involvement of key functions beyond IT is important in addressing cyber security because the ramifications of hacking can be immense. The costs of these attacks –financial or reputational can be staggering and hence CFO’s need to make cyber security a top priority to safeguard the future of their organizations.

  • Are cyber threats designated as strategic risks and subject to formal ERM process treatment?
  • What mitigation policies are in place and how do they stay current with the quickly evolving nature of cyber security risks?
  • What training, technology and controls are in place to ensure that these incidents do not happen again?
  • Are the CFOs making investments into the right projects and people?

A CFO is not just the corporate financial gatekeeper; the ever evolving role is expanding once again. It has become critical for CFOs to learn to live with economic volatility, where access to capital comes and goes at short intervals.

Are the expectations of CEOs from their CFOs realistic?

  • Positively impacting the value of an organization: contributing to performance and growth
  • Leveraging the increasing wealth of financial information so as to play a more strategic role in assessing new markets, improving performance and meeting the regulatory burden

Executive Discussion: Building Blocks of a Successful and Cost Effective Finance Transformation

With the global economy and the business environment becoming more complex every day, companies are increasingly keen to transform their finance function from just a supporting department within an organization into an integral part of the business. For many companies, finance transformation is no longer a choice; it is the only way forward.

  • Will huge investments in new technologies and process re-engineering enough to make finance transformations succeed?
  • A successful finance transformation is about having a clear vision for what you want to achieve and putting in place the right controls, risk management procedures, and data and visibility to analytics and insights, to make better decisions
  • Driving strategic decisions around capital, cash, and growth. And these are the things that investors are paying attention to and rewarding companies for
  • Designing all the tools and techniques you need to turn your finance function from a service center to a profit center, from being reactive to proactive, from a support function to a business partner and ultimately a steward of capital

  • Developing a core team to deliver the required outcomes
  • Building and retaining a pipeline of finance talent to support the transformation and continued growth
  • Developing a talent strategy focused on recruiting top new talent, identifying high-potential talent among current employees, leadership development, talent deployment and succession planning

While the global and national economy continues to face various external pressures, the Global Business Services (GBS) industry is likely to buck the trend and register stronger growth in 2017 in Malaysia.
