Abu Dhabi will host the first World Financial Symposium (WFS) for the airline industry on 17-18 September 2014.
More than 600 financial executives and specialists are expected to attend the event, which is hosted by Etihad Airways, a statement from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced yesterday.
During the symposium experts in revenue accounting, treasury, risk management, fraud prevention and other areas will exchange ideas to identify successful strategies for improved airline financial health.
"Aviation has a global economic impact of US$2.4 trillion and transports 35% of goods traded by value around US$6.8 trillion this year. And consumers spend 1% of global GDP on air transport. But there is a mismatch between the value that the industry contributes to global economies and the rewards that it generates for those who risk their capital to finance the industry. This year we anticipate that the average return on invested capital will reach 5.4%. This is an improvement over prior years and reflects successful consolidation and restructuring. But investor returns are around US$15 billion less than would be expected for an industry such as commercial air transport," said Tony Tyler, IATA's Director General and CEO.
"The World Financial Symposium provides an excellent opportunity to bring together experts from inside and outside aviation to analyse the financial challenges that we confront as an industry," he added Under the theme "Supporting Sustained Financial Health," the WFS will feature a keynote address by John Luth, Chairman and CEO of Seabury Group. Mr. Luth also will participate in the leadership panel with other top industry financial experts, including: Christoph Mueller, CEO, Aer Lingus Group; James Hogan, President and CEO, Etihad Airways and Peter Davies, Senior Partnerand Co-Head of Developed Markets Strategy, Lansdowne Partners.
Another highlight is the CFO Summit, which is open to senior financial executives from airlines, business partners and key suppliers.
Other topics to be discussed at WFS include: transforming revenue accounting; managing risk in a changing world; payment methods and fraud prevention, and building a world class treasury.
