This autumn's event in our Digital Treasury Summit (DTRS) series will take place with the participation of KPMG Treasury Advisory in Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Please make a note of the date already: Wednesday, 27 October 2021 from 3pm to 4.30pm.

Twice already, due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, we have held our semi-annual Digital Treasury Summit event series, successfully running since 2018, virtually via livestream: in October 2020 and in March 2021.

We have received very positive feedback so far on the compact 90-minute format, which covers four presentations on current corporate treasury issues given by speakers from well-known companies. 

In view of the prevailing uncertain situation in respect of the pandemic, we are continuing the virtual format for this year's autumn event. This time we will also offer participants a cross-border insight into current treasury issues. We are pleased to announce that the heads of KPMG Treasury Advisory in Switzerland and the United Kingdom will each be presenting you with a corporate speaker. For this reason, the DTRS will be held entirely in English this autumn.

Our well-established format will draw on current issues in treasury. Mr Klein from SWIFT will discuss the ISO 20022 migration and its impact on treasury. Mr Osmanaj, Head of Corporate Financial Controlling at Covestro, will provide insight into the process of automating foreign currency management at his company. Malcolm Francis William Grant from the UN Migration Agency will discuss robotic process automation in treasury from Zurich and David Dunkerley will report from London on setting up the treasury organisation at Darktrace Ltd. as part of the IPO in April of this year. 

We will send invitations along with a registration link for the Digital Treasury Summit on 27 October to all newsletter subscribers at the end of September. Participation is free of charge. We look forward to seeing you!
