Adapting to an inflationary environment

About this event


Strategies for growing in the alternative futures economy

Moody’s APAC Outlook: A Coming Downshift reveals “the economy of the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is slowing, and this trade-dependent region is feeling the effects of slower global trade. It noted that even as the major economies of APAC expand following delayed reopening from the pandemic-related shutdown, the expected slowdowns in Europe and North America, along with China’s sluggish economy, will mean slower growth in 2023 compared to 2022.

And while economists predict that Asia will not go through a recession, a slower than expected recovery is forecasts heavily influenced by inflationary pressures, rising interest rates and volatile foreign exchange.

With inflation among ASEAN markets forecast between 1.0 to 4.0%, how should business and finance leaders plan and execute their 2023 strategies for what the Conference Board predicts to be continued disruption in the years ahead driven by rising geopolitical volatility which affects energy and food security, as well as global supply chains?

Alexander Bant, chief of research in the Gartner Finance practice, sees inflation as a catalyst driving CFOs to ramp up digital investments with the aim of lowering the cost of doing business and identifying new sources of profitability.

At FutureCFO, we believe that technology alone will not help finance teams ride the wave of uncertainty. With this in mind, we invite you to a roundtable discussion of CFOs and senior finance leaders to present and discuss strategies for growth in an inflationary environment.

Among the topic we will address are:

  • FP&A trends in 2023
  • Drivers to include in the planning process
  • Improving accuracy of on-demand forecasting
  • Best practices for adaptive scenario planning
  • Architecting crises-proof scenario planning

On behalf of FutureCFO and Jedox, I would like to personally invite you to join me on 20th April for a very important discussion on adapting to an inflationary environment and building strategies for growing in the alternative futures economy.
