  • (1888PressRelease) July 27, 2010 - Even in the best of times, CFOs have had several issues to deal with. In recent past, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance imposed a huge strain on the CFO community. And then the economic crisis hit placing several additional, and at times counter-acting demands on the CFO. Many CFOs were challenged with keeping their companies' finances moving when their long-standing banking partners were at risk of failing. Others had to manage liquidity in an environment where easy money dried up. As the crisis progressed, CFOs had to forecast the impact of the recession on their financial statements. Several CFOs had to wield the axe again - working with senior management team to ruthlessly cut costs to make the business survive. On the other hand, a few CFOs were challenged with planning for a rapid recovery in the emerging markets, while managing poor business conditions in the large western economies. So how are CFOs managing and addressing these challenges? What approach and actions are they taking?

    Yip Teck Chee, Conference Director, IQPC Worldwide says: "CFOs today are under tremendous pressure from investors and boards to deliver results and shape the future of their companies. Key challenges they faced include talent management, providing better decision-making support to the business, integration and driving information across the enterprise and also enterprise risk management. We acknowledge this and it has encouraged us to gather CFOs across Asia at the 2nd Annual CFO Asia Summit to share how they have come out with solutions to overcome these challenges faced."
