Becoming Strategists and Catalysts for Change

Recognising that increasing market volatility and technology disruption are reshaping finance roles across organisations, Deloitte and Singapore Management University are collaborating to offer a series of Corporate Financial Risk Management Masterclasses to be offered at the SMU Academy. The masterclasses are specially designed to help Chief Financial Officers, treasurers and finance professionals strengthen their skillsets to ride the winds of change.

The SMU-Deloitte Corporate Financial Risk Management Masterclass is a series of two-day workshops that provide a holistic approach to effective financial risk management, with the second Masterclass focusing on cash and liquidity management.

Boards and CFOs need to be comfortable that currency risks are identified, understood and managed effectively in their organisations. Delivered through a combination of lectures, case discussions and presentation, participants will gain practical knowledge and valuable insights to help them better manage liquidity risks.
