Pro-active and sound balance sheet risk management is paramount to building a sustainable business. While managing financial risk can be very complex companies failing to take a holistic risk management approach might find themselves in a position of compromised cash flows, insufficient liquidity, increased regulatory scrutiny and risk access to capital markets.

When implementing risk management decisions, organisations may need to execute relatively complex investment, borrowing and hedging transactions. The operational, technical, and regulatory requirements in this complex environment can be difficult to manage in an ever-changing market and rapid changes in technology.

Creating value for your treasury function

Organisations are holding up a lens to their existing treasury approach seeking to drive a robust balance sheet by taking proactive measures to manage market and regulatory exposures. Treasury functions continue to evolve, so creating additional value utilising existing architecture remains a focus. A future state can significantly add value. One that is driven by Treasury management system renewals, revised operating model, governance and framework uplift, improved processes and controls, development or improvement of data analytics & governance, along with stress testing of capabilities.
