Immense strength and resilience
This, our November-December issue, comes to you hot off the heels of our 2021 Adam Smith Awards Asia live winners’ announcement. The spirit of this year’s animal, the ox, is seen in the record-breaking number of outstanding submissions, demonstrating immense strength and resilience amidst our challenging times.
We are proud that whilst a lot has changed around us, some things stay true, in particular our community’s commitment to each other and to celebrating achievement. Collaboration and commitment typify the spirit of the Adam Smith Awards Asia and the regional corporate finance community in general. This now kicks off our official awards season and we can’t wait to share this year’s fantastic winner stories with you all.
This is our last edition of 2021 and within it we explore the key trends of the moment, looking at the digital journeys of corporations, the evolving fintech landscape as well as digital currencies, which will be a huge focus for us heading into 2022. Beyond that we explore the soft skills of modern treasury leaders, including empathy in action within our regular Treasury Talent feature. Our Question Answered feature looks at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, cutting through the mass of coverage to answer corporate critical focus. We also take a look at New Zealand in a country focus for corporate finance professionals.
