Algemene informatie

We observe the world of Finance is rapidly changing due to technology. Stakeholders demand that financial teams operate efficiently and effectively, think over their business partner role, and redefine their workforce. The Future of Finance will be agile and support sustainable business performance enabled by technology. CFOs, Controllers, and finance teams are looking for the ability to evaluate and communicate business performance transparently and timely. The skill set of the RC plays a key role in supporting finance management with decision-making, hence also navigating through changes and challenges. It is, therefore, crucial for the RC to have a robust understanding of the future of finance and its developments.

Therefore, EY and the VRC have organized a cycle of four sessions to share the subjects that are essential for a better understanding of the financial horizon. These are:

  • Strategy & Alignment (incl. ESG and long-term value)
  • Data, Technology, Process & Controls;
  • Talent & Culture;
  • Finance workforce & Sourcing

First session: Strategy & Alignment | 18 January 2024 – 15:00

Organizations will focus more on long-term value creation. Here, the future of FP&A is to provide more transparent, real-time approval and allocation of costs and more timely and accurate profitability analysis. There will be a shift from the traditional role to focus on long-term value. Changes that will impact the role of the Register Controller are FP&A solutions that pre-populate forecasts using historical and market data, automated loading of pre-populated balances into the FP&A solution and variance reports against actuals, real-time dashboards in Power BI with an interface to the FP&A tool and the role of the RC in long-term value creation. RCs are supported by digital assistants, interactive visualizations, and dashboards with verbal analysis/commentary. Focusing on analysis instead of complying with reports/data, uploads/reconciliations, and defining the finance target operating model/service model for the future.
