2024 SUPPORTING PARTNERS

ABOUT THE EVENT

As businesses emerge from the challenges posed by the last recent disruptions in the region and world at large, CFOs are once again facing a critical role in steering the path to recovery and addressing a dynamic array of issues. Restoring capital amidst impairments and adjusting risk capacities in regulated sectors, alongside managing asset price fluctuations and narrowed profit margins, necessitates a strategic emphasis on cost-efficiency. 

Investors and board members now seek sustained double-digit return-on-equity, stable credit evaluations, and heightened clarity on risk exposures to optimize shareholder value. Concurrently, regulators are intensifying their focus on real-time oversight of organizational operations and disclosures, with a slate of new initiatives planned for 2024, including an increased emphasis on sustainability and ESG factors. 

Adding complexity, business divisions are demanding The CFO Connect Qatar 2024 brought together some of the best and finest minds in finance from Qatar and the region, from different industries to discuss these challenges. And share insights and strategies on how latest tools and solutions can help the office of the finance evolve and rise up to be able to meet the new reality of todays business to drive growth and profitability in the new digital economy.
