The US-China trade war and rising interest rates are weighing on growth in the world economy and making markets more volatile. The shadow of a recession is looming. Corporate concerns over top-line performance are driving cost reduction. Closing the employee skills gap, political dysfunction and rising employment costs are additional challenges. As the new owners of data, CFOs have an unprecedented opportunity to add insight and value to the transformation of their enterprise’s digital agenda. Following the successful launch of the London event, the FT CFO Dialogues will take place in New York. This thought leadership event is designed for CFOs and senior finance executives across all sectors in North America.
What role should the finance community play in navigating such uncertainty, managing risk and helping their organizations seize new opportunities? How can CFOs ensure that external partnerships deliver value for the business and for shareholders? How can they use their leadership role to maintain effective partnerships within the business and promote a culture of productivity? How can finance teams balance optimising efficiency with delivering data insights and developing talent?
Join the FT and cross-sector CFOs and senior executives from the US business community, and take part in the conversation.
