SMU-Deloitte Corporate Financial Risk Management Masterclass

With Singapore being an international hub for business and financial market activities, the need for talent with financial risk management expertise can only increase. Senior finance professionals are now expected to move beyond their traditional roles as operators and stewards to become strategists and catalysts for change to their organisations. Recognising that increasing market volatility and technology disruption are reshaping functional roles across businesses, the curriculum has been specially designed to help Chief Financial Officers, Treasurers, finance and risk management professionals strengthen their expertise and skills to ride the winds of change.

The SMU-Deloitte Corporate Financial Risk Management Masterclass consists of a series of two-day workshops that provide a holistic approach to effective financial risk management. The practice oriented curricula include funding strategy, managing liquidity and foreign exchange volatility, and future-proofing treasury with technology. The panel of facilitators from Deloitte and SMU will draw on industry experience to share insights and practical issues.
