Paul LaRock, Managing Director, is guest speaker at AFP Ottawa Canada, speaking on 2016 Treasury Profession High Priorities.
In 2013, we spoke about Treasury at the Crossroads. Fast forward to 2016 and we see exponentially increasing complexity. The markets, the regulations, the banks, the FinTech companies are all in a state of rapid change. Volatility, diverging global rates, commodity price changes, liquidity gaps, widening spreads, Basel III – yikes! Never has treasury had to deal with so many moving parts at one time.
We will discuss how treasurers are gearing up to manage complexity. Our recent survey of 2016 treasury provides a wealth of information on this topic. It examines treasury priorities around thirty-four distinct activities. Our hands-on consulting provides clear insights in how to address both the strategic and tactical challenges. Our clients are building high quality internal teams, partnering with best in class external resources and honing their technology to meet these challenges. In short, we will provide a framework for the attendees to think about their 2016 challenges and a blueprint to make 2016 their best year ever!
