Hays Hong Kong was invited to present at the 9th Asian Insurance CFO Summit hosted by Asia Insurance Review. The event took place on the 3 - 5 June 2015 at The Excelsior Hotel in Hong Kong.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Reinventing the CFO’s Role in the Era of Disruptions” and brought together 125 professionals from across 14 countries. Disruptive innovation is now becoming an important challenge for the insurance industry as well as for the wider economy. Despite the unique specificities of the insurance industry, it is increasingly targeted by disruptive innovation and technology impacting how clients are served. The winds of change through social media, big data, rising risk profiles, evolving regulatory regimes and new technologies appear set to sweep widely through the insurance landscape and CFOs need to try to hold the fort while retaining and growing their business. An important factor in their success is developing and retaining top talent that can help them drive an organisation forward.
Riley King, Hays Accountancy & Finance Team Manager, presented at the summit and shared Hays' insights on why accountancy and finance talent is in demand. He also shared tips to help CFOs retain their top finance professionals. He said that Asia is certainly facing some attraction and retention challenges - as are other countries across the world - but employers can work through these issues with the right information and right tools.
