Ms. Beaudoin explained the six megatrends in finance as - Remote work will be the norm for finance teams; Environmental, social and governance reporting will be crucial; finance will be responsible for Enterprise Risk Management; Diversity, equity & inclusion to be a differentiator; Automation to grow; Greater demand for upskilling. She listed the job roles that are likely to be taken over by automation in the near future. She observed that with respect to India, the major factors that challenge the future of controllership are - limited financial resources, lack of time for transformation and lack of expertise.
