300 to discuss key corporate finance issues
Dubai, October 4, 2012
Over 300 delegates from across the GCC will come discuss key issues facing corporate treasurers, risk managers and corporate finance professionals in the Middle East region at an upcoming summit in Dubai.
The third edition of the ACT (Association of Corporate Treasures) Middle East Conference will be at Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel on October 8 and 9.
This year’s event theme ‘Shifting Sands – Connecting the World’ will look at the on-going shift in economic power from west to east and what this migration means for the Gulf region.
Leading speakers treasury experts from across the GCC will discuss topics including; treasury liquidity management, effective cash management policy, funding and investment strategy, technology solutions for treasury and risk management strategy.
Matthew Hurn, chairman of ACT Middle East said: “Despite being a key financial region, the Middle East suffers from a widespread lack of knowledge and understanding of the treasury function.”
“Many professionals in the market are guilty of considering it as one and the same as the CFO function. During this conference we plan to educate and inform the audience about the treasury function to help them understand how using it effectively can help their business grow and develop.”
After day one of the conference, ACT Middle East will host its annual awards dinner where winners will be acknowledged for exemplary use of the treasury division to facilitate highly successful deals and transactions over the past twelve months.
The ACT is the international body for qualifying, supporting and representing professionals working in treasury, risk and corporate finance. – TradeArabia News Service
