EVENT OVERVIEW

The future of finance is all about managing across functions, building the right combination of capabilities, and establishing a strong data foundation. On-going FutureCFO dialogues with finance leaders across the function reveal a continued commitment to driving growth through digital transformation.

However, the maelstrom of non-aligned priorities, talent shortages, legacy processes and too many options when it comes to technologies make the road to growth in 2024 a formidable challenge for even the most seasoned finance professionals.

A Gartner’s research affirms that organisations face a medium-term environment characterised by tepid demand growth, stubbornly high costs and constrained access to capital – referring to the combination as a deadweight economic condition. “Absent fortuitous events such as a surprise end to geopolitical conflict, a swift halt to inflation or the quick realisation of dramatic productivity gains from AI, CFOs should expect many of the underlying economic trends contributing to the deadweight economy to persist across their strategic planning horizon.

If there is a steady global economy that supports the overall growth path, Malaysia’s economic growth is projected to be at 4%-5% in 2024. With fiscal strengthening and consolidation as the focus of Malaysia’s 2024 budget, the current Malaysia’s government has set the largest budget ever tabled by any government in Malaysia’s history, with a total allocation of RM393.8 billion for this year. The Budget 2024 aims to address the twin challenges of a less robust global economic outlook and Malaysia’s financial constraints.

Malaysia government is also looking into to building an ecosystem and regulatory frameworks that support green and digital economies investments. While the current administration introduces new taxes and targeted subsidies this year, how would these new developments impact finance leaders in Malaysia?

This 2024, the FutureCFO Malaysia Conference will be held in Kuala Lumpur on 26 June 2024, bringing together seasoned finance professionals to uncover:

  • How to sustain enterprise’s growth engine amidst challenging time
  • Transformation roadmap for success in the future
  • Best practices in riding the transformation challenges
  • Tactics for evaluating digital competencies across the function
  • How to build realistic and trustworthy forecasts
  • Strategies to shorten the digital financial close
  • Top challenges in data, data technology and governance management
  • AI and smart automation priorities and use cases
  • People management for stronger, digitally competent teams

 

The challenges ahead present real and economic tailwinds that can derail ongoing efforts to transform organisations into engines of innovation and growth. For the finance team, there remains clear opportunities to lead by example out of the potential maelstrom that lies ahead to bring about sustained growth in the years ahead.

KEYNOTE I: Revamping the Future of Finance with Connected Finance

Finance functions typically operate with separate inventory of tools which don’t talk to each other, thus creating silos of data. Connected finance is the process within finance operations that integrates financial services with digital technologies for interconnected workflow and seamless experience for businesses and their consumers.

  • Creating value with connected finance
  • The fundamentals of connected finance
  • Aggregating systems to achieve a unified business outcome with connected finance

Keynote II: Streamlining Finance: Unlocking the Potential of e-Invoicing

More and more governments are planning or implementing mandatory e-invoicing for B2B and B2C transactions. On one side, this digital revolution is to allow tax administrators to change and tightened tax collection and reduce tax frauds. On other side, e-invoicing is a chance for many businesses to reduce their costs of operations and streamline their O2C or P2P processes.

The revolution is here and happening in Malaysia. The first phase of mandatory e-invoicing in Malaysia is just around the corner with 4000 companies in Malaysia to implement e-invoicing solution and use it starting August 1st this year.

  • How to effectively introduce e-invoicing to your company?
  • Why e-invoicing can bring benefits to your organisation?
  • What changes are introduced in other countries in the ASEAN/ASIA region?

Panel Discussion III: Embracing Generative AI: Opportunities and Risks for CFOs

According to EY, CFOs saw a new priority on C-Suite agenda as they steer their organisations through an uncertain growth outlook in 2024: Generative AI (GenAI).

As much as this transformative technology is a powerful ally in shaping enterprise’s sustainable and prosperous future in the age of innovation, there are considerations that CFOs need to ponder before they confidently embark on adopting GenAI for their business.

  • How is GenAI shaping the future of business and finance teams?
  • Prioritising AI projects that deliver ROI
  • Tackling technical debt presented by AI investments
  • Responsible applications of Gen AI
  • Challenges in ensuring AI and data governance

Constant market disruptions and skill shortages prompt finance leaders to work smarter.

  • Scaling up automation for finance function
  • Streamlining the digital financial close process with automation

KEYNOTE III: Empowering Finance with Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Automation

Gartner, McKinsey and many other analysts predict that Artificial Intelligence (AI), including Generative AI, is one of the top investment areas for companies seeking a competitive advantage in 2024 and beyond. The AI revolution is impacting all businesses and organizations, and we cannot afford to ignore the opportunity to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, and increase user satisfaction.

  • How to make sense of the AI landscape and identify where to start
  • Leveraging AI and Intelligent Automation to increase finance process efficiency

14:10

PANEL DISCUSSION IV: Incorporating Agility into Planning, Forecasting and Budgeting

VUCA or not, cash flow is indisputably the lifeblood of the business. Fulfilling short-term payment obligations have become challenging to some organisations, yet leveraging on credits or borrowing is not quite an answer either as interest rates continue to grow.

Making data-based forecasts and financial strategy will equip finance leaders to tackle obstacles and provide a clear picture of their financial trajectory throughout the coming year.

  • Cash flow planning and frequent forecasting amidst uncertainty
  • Meeting cash forecasting challenges
  • Improving cash forecasting accuracy, liquidity planning and management and working capital with data and modern technologies
  • Leveraging AI and ML to build realistic and trustworthy forecasts even without reliable recent historical data

PANEL DISCUSSION V: Building a Sustainable Path towards Future Talent Management

A recent 2023’s Corporate Finance & Accounting Talent Study reveals that 68% of CFOs and Controllers find it difficult to find finance and accounting talent for their organisation.

Talent war was a big issue in the past few years and the growing talent competition is still expected to be a hot topic for many CFOs in 2024. This said finance leaders will need to overhaul their hiring and retention strategies to address staffing shortages.

  • The characters of finance talent management landscape in 2024
  • Developing talent pool and management program that supports company’s sustainability and resiliency
  • Expanding boundaries of people, systems and technologies
  • Best practices in people management for stronger and digitally competent teams
