Digital Treasury: A Future-State Vision (X)

Session Description

This presentation will focus on the treasury function of the future. The presentation will provide an overview and perspectives around how emerging technologies (i.e., blockchain, RPA, AI, cloud, and IoT) will not only transform, but disrupt, the treasury functions of the future, and ultimately change how Treasury delivers on its mandate to optimize financial assets and liabilities, drive cash flow improvements, process cash transactions and manage financial risk. We will then discuss how emerging technology will be applied to treasury objectives, such as financial risk management, by discussing a use case. Lastly, the session will include an in-depth discussion on steps that can be taken today to prepare Treasury functions for these technological changes in the future.
