Centralizing Treasury in a Decentralized World (A)

Session Description

As companies grow their global footprint, they often struggle with decentralization, which makes it difficult for efficient cash management. “How much cash do we have?” is a question that a treasury organization should always be able to answer. However, according to Ovum’s 2016 survey of 200 treasurers across 23 countries, only 13% of multinational corporates can see their real-time global cash position. Attaining full visibility and efficiency can prove quite challenging for multinational companies without uniform internal systems and with thinly spread local staff.


This session will focus on gaining control of your company’s most important asset: cash. The speakers will be sharing their unique perspectives as well as strategies for organizing cash management operations strategically in order to uncover and address any inefficiencies. The goal of the discussion will be to not only highlight best practices but also delve into prioritizing the steps you need to take.


Learning Objectives:

  • Strategies to improve control as well as visibility of global bank accounts and leverage that visibility to implement a short-term forecasting process.
  • Learn about various internal structures that can help centralize treasury operations and identify ways to manage risk.
