The state of global treasury – Untangling the knots
The 2-day corporate programme and this session will be preceded with a key note from Dr. Ailish Campbell, Assistant Deputy Minister and Chief Commissioner International Business Development from Global Affairs Canada.
As market conditions such as negative interest rates and the evolution of oil prices add uncertainty to global treasury operations, corporates also face a myriad of geopolitical and operational uncertainties when considering their longer term strategy. The unclear impact of the new US administration on financing global treasury businesses, the unknown impact of Brexit, the uncertainty of taxation, new legislation and increased competition all add to the decision making challenge. Cybersecurity risk is a rapidly growing concern for larger corporates - are banks still the trusted advisor? In this session, a panel of corporates and bankers will explore these challenges and also discuss influence of new players in the financial industry and the impact on global treasury operations.
