Evolving regulatory, risk, and technology environment presents new challenges
Wolters Kluwer Finance, Risk & Regulatory Reporting (FRR) presents a CFO Roundtable discussion in August for finance leaders and other senior decision makers in banking and financial services that explores the future of regulatory compliance in banking and how organizations can leverage technology to augment data governance and risk analysis capabilities. “The Modern Banking Leader: Emerging Trends and Tomorrow’s opportunities,” will be held from noon to 2:30 AEST Wednesday, August 24th at the Park Hyatt Hotel, Sydney.
Subbaiyan Vaithinathan, Director, Regulatory Reporting and AML, for Wolters Kluwer FRR-APAC, will serve as a panelist for an in-depth discussion on the changing regulatory, risk, and data technology landscape. He will be joined by other executive finance experts from CommBank, National Australia Bank, Newcastle Permanent Building Society Limited, ING Australia, Teachers Mutual Bank Limited, and Mynted.
“The role of the CFO has transformed dramatically over recent years, remaining an enforcer of compliance while repositioning next to the CEO to drive innovation, identify areas of value, and map the future,” says Vaithinathan. “With increased influence comes pressure to deliver data with utmost speed and accuracy and champion enterprise-wide modernization.”
Vaithinathan notes the rate at which risk events occur and the impact they have on regulations have only been exacerbated by the recent pandemic. Banking finance leaders are venturing into unfamiliar territory as they manage supply chain concerns, an unpredictable geopolitical climate, labor market disruptions, and adoption plans for digital currencies and cryptocurrencies.
With this context, the roundtable will examine how finance leaders are navigating their organizations through a new digital landscape while heavily influencing both day-to-day decision-making and big-picture strategies. The event will examine how banking has evolved in recent years, emerging trends and challenges that are impacting finance leaders, and how they can meaningfully influence their banks in digitalization. The panel will also explore how the CFO can champion growth and cushion an organization during a downturn, while looking at the future role of the bank CFO.
Attendance is by invitation only and complimentary. Prior registration is required and is limited to a select number of guests for this event.
