Since its launch in 2004 several thousand CFOs and senior financiers, drawn from across Russia and abroad and representing the widest range of industries, have gathered in Moscow every October. The CFO Summit has firmly established itself as the annual meeting place for the elite of the finance profession in Russia, providing the ideal platform to network, share experiences and hear first-hand cutting-edge case studies from recognised leaders of the profession.
Along with the role of the CFO itself, the Summit has constantly evolved to reflect the challenges that our participants have faced. Over the course of the boom years, with a raft of IPOs, bond issuances and M&A deals, through the post-crisis challenges of debt restructuring and cost-cutting, our speakers have always been remarkably willing to share their experiences and ensure that their peers benefit from their experience. In this way, a unique club of corporate leaders, strategists and financiers has developed. Make sure you benefit by joining them in October this year.
The Summit programme is currently being refined to ensure that it addresses the issues you may well be facing due to a challenging macroeconomic climate, uncertainty due to external factors, a lack of options when it comes to financing requirements and the need to cut costs and maintain liquidity, whilst also providing your valued input into the company’s strategic vision.
The Adam Smith Russian CFO Summit is the largest and longest-running annual meeting for the CFO community in Russia, bringing together senior finance executives from across the country and beyond and providing a unique opportunity to benchmark, share experience and best practice and discuss the latest developments in the profession.
"Informative, with excellent networking opportunities; better every year"
"A meeting where CFOs can cross-check their understanding of the situation, forecasts and paths for development with their peers"
