16.15 – 17.00h The rise of the intangible economy
For the first time, the major developed economies began to invest more in intangible assets, like design, branding, R&D, and software, than in tangible assets, like machinery, buildings, and computers. For all sorts of businesses, from tech firms and pharma companies to coffee shops and gyms, the ability to deploy assets that one can neither see nor touch is increasingly the main source of long-term success.

As a CFO, you’re working in a challenging global business environment. New technology is disrupting existing business models, markets and society. Today, 80% of an organization’s value lies in its intangible assets, compared to less than 20% 40 years ago. So, how will you gain a holistic view of the complexities surrounding your business model in this digitally disrupted environment?
And what can you do to gain a new perspective to create value and success for your organization and stakeholders?
