World-Class Treasury Management

The current digitalization of our world also impacts in depth the Treasury world. We can observe a combination of 3 disrupting factors: increasing of speed, of complexity and of possibilities. Some technologies are now much cheaper than before and it is essential to make the most of them, so as to remain competitive. Many Treasurers’ tasks can now be done at lower costs, and the Treasurers need to focus on other tasks bringing more added-value to their company. Moreover, the Cyber risk has become one of the 5 major world risks for all corporates. Although ever increasing, the Cyber risk can be reduced with a bundle of specific actions.

Treasury teams and departments must now work differently in order to cope with this disrupting context. They have to do their previous tasks faster and at lower costs while being able to contribute to the new challenges of their companies.

On another hand, banks’ cash management services have to consider the new needs of their customers and also to include newcomers in their process. Some partnerships and coordination of services can bring new competitive offer and a wider profitable activity.

Salvo Global’s 3-day interactive workshop is designed for two audiences with congruent learning objectives

  • The workshop is designed to provide Corporate Treasury, Accounting and Finance professionals with current, practical knowledge of key points concerning Cash Management tools and organization. They will understand how to perform a more efficient and secured Cash Management activity bringing more added value to their Company.
  • This workshop will also provide commercial bankers in cash management services, product development and marketing, an in-depth understanding of their customers’ world. They will identify the main attention points, in particular in security so as to better meet their customers’ requirements.

Using case study methodology, dedicated questionnaires and practical examples to illustrate key points, the attendees will be able to apply Best Practice tools and techniques in their own context so as to reduce costs, and to improve control and security.
