TN Finance Conclave


The past decade has not been easy for the finance professionals due to erratic markets, better technologies and a complex web of new regulations and compliance issues. This has forced the finance function to redefine its role in the organization. Long gone are the days of simply ‘collecting, paying and reporting’. Facing rapidly changing market and economic conditions, the modern finance function has had to be both nimble and reliable to respond to a myriad of internal and external pressures. Finance leaders should be seeking to transform their functions to deliver not just efficient services, but more importantly effective services as well. From supplying more insightful Business Intelligence and forecasting to anticipating and responding to sudden market disruptions, today’s finance professional is expected to be as much as business strategist as a financial expert.


To respond to these rapidly evolving pressures, the finance function must undergo a fundamental change and realignment in order to transform it from the transactional operational management role of the past into a centre of cost-efficient and effective strategic value-addition for the future. But this type of transformation doesn’t happen in isolation. It requires both the high level support and collaboration between multiple functions to design, execute and maintain real and valuable change initiatives.


The environment in which the finance professionals operate has been constantly changing. Market fluctuations and credit turbulence create game changing opportunities and challenges. New technologies radically changes operating models and increased shareholder scrutiny and public demands for transparency put new pressures on the finance function.
