Bringing together the elite of the Russian CFO community!

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.

  • A 3-day main programme filled with interactive formats, panel discussions, debates, live interviews and plenary and parallel sessions, packed with original viewpoints and innovative case studies;
  • A 60-strong speaker faculty features the most respected and admired CFOs from Russia and abroad. Each year the speaker panel is carefully and equally balanced between the most well-established members of the CFO community and new figures who are quickly establishing their names amongst their peers. In 2012 over 50% of the speakers or companies were brand new to the Summit;
  • Over 400 attendees annually drawn from the widest range of industries and from across Russia and beyond. They recognise that the Russian CFO Summit provides a unique and invaluable opportunity to meet with their peers and discuss common challenges.

Background to the Russian CFO Summit

10 years ago, at our numerous industry-specific conferences in Russia, we noticed a clear trend: that CFOs were appearing more and more often amongst the speakers and delegates and that, as a rule, they were an impressive group of people, with a high level of professionalism and experience beyond their years and a strategic vision for the direction of their companies.

At the same time corporate Russia was maturing quickly, with the first international listings, companies tapping the international capital markets and a general desire to raise the levels of transparency, corporate governance and financial reporting.

What was lacking was a meeting-place for the CFO community to come together and share common experiences and best practice. Therefore when the Russian CFO Summit was launched in October 2004 it immediately found a receptive and eager audience.

Since then 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.
