Treasury professionals are now expected to be more proactive than ever by anticipating and initiating change, rather than reacting to events. Optimizing and protecting cash, and minimizing exposure across a wide range of risks are at the forefront for proactive treasury teams. It’s critical that key measures are taken to enable organizations to execute effective risk strategies.
As the scope of financial risk factors continues to evolve and change for the treasury professional, the same holds true for the technology vendor and implementation provider. The waterfall effect from the changes in risk management standards across the entire treasury space makes it especially crucial and challenging for each participant to stay proactive and in line with the best practices. Treasury professionals also need to stay on top of all issues associated with managing, delivering and implementing risk management solutions that meet industry standards today and into the future.
