Instant treasury: Everything, everywhere, all at once

Session description:
Knowing where your liquidity is has become increasingly important from a corporate perspective. This is largely driven by a combination of risk management needs and simply the expectation today that info should be available in real time and at our fingertips. Balances are more important than ever, with the return of inflation and the need for increased efficiency. As technology also improves to potentially meet that demand, it’s vital for service providers to deliver on demand information to their clients. In this session, we’ll focus on the need for real-time information to cut risk and drive efficiency in the current high interest rate era.

Big Issue Debate: Are financial services ready to leap into the new era of sustainable business practices?
