Each year, Treasury Strategies assesses the state of the treasury profession and key issues on the horizon. We supplement our rich experiences from consulting to corporate Treasurers with a robust survey of treasury priorities. This year, over 450 organizations participated in the survey.
When we consider what our clients and the survey participants are telling us, it is clear we are closing the book on the financial crisis. They see the regulatory onslaught beginning to temper, interest rates beginning to rise, economies gaining traction and, importantly, banks back in the banking business. Hence our theme for 2017, “A New Starting Line.” While many of their priorities are quite familiar, treasury is taking fresh approaches to tackling them.
Our key survey insights are discussed in this summary. You can use these as a barometer to confirm your own priorities or identify activities that may have escaped your radar. Of course, you can call us to discuss these further.
