Deploying Predictive Risk Analytics and Targeted Business Intelligence to Improve Financial Forecasting and Cash-Flow Management

Speaker: Bryant Lee

Founder and Managing Director

Viking Energy Management

Description: Regardless of corporate structure, failure to quantify and manage risk across operational silos ultimately becomes a problem for the CFO when earnings fall short of expectations. It is important for today’s CFOs to understand the fundamentals of firm-wide risk quantification, know what questions to ask, and have access to metrics that are critical to making swift, informed decisions. Specifically, how will the collective impacts of changes in interest rates, foreign exchange, energy, and raw materials impact cash flow and earnings? Viking Risk Management’s Bryant Lee will review the essential elements of a sound risk strategy and then open the forum up to address specific questions about your company’s potential exposures and commodity risk challenges.
