AFTF 2021: the biggest questions facing business

ANZ Insights

Published October 19 2021

Modern businesses face a unique combination of challenges and opportunities as the world enters the post-pandemic era. 

The lingering impacts of COVID-19, rapid digitisation and ongoing climate challenges are all issues which businesses need to address to really take advantage of the opportunities offered by this new world.

Geopolitical tensions and supply chain disruptions mean business leaders are dealing with ongoing changes to long-established, capital-intensive global value chains. 


The disruptive power of technology helped the world fight the pandemic, but the challenge for business is how it can use this rapid change in a meaningful way – including in the workplace. In this space, employee engagement will be critical to fostering innovation and forging strong connections with clients.

Elsewhere, risk managers increasingly view the changing climate as a significant long-term challenge. The tools to transform adversity into opportunity, and build a more sustainable, equal world exist – the challenge is how these will be applied. Sustainable investment is just one of these key tools for business.

These questions and more will be discussed at the 2021 virtual ANZ Finance & Treasury Forum. 

The ANZ Finance & Treasury Forum will return for its fourth year in 2021, to be held virtually across two days on October 20 and 21.

Don’t miss out – contact your ANZ Relationship Manager for your all-access pass to explore key topics of global importance to your business today, with a fantastic speaker line-up across geopolitics, sustainability, technology, pandemic outcomes and leadership.

In the lead up, during and after the event, ANZ Insights will provide coverage and insights into the key themes from the forum and beyond.
