Gain Control of Your International Cash Management
Strategies for implementing best practices
Thursday | August 24, 2017 | 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET
Are you facing international cash management challenges without uniform internal systems and with thinly-spread local staff? Have you rationalized your bank accounts recently? Do you have on-demand visibility into your global cash?
According to a 2016 Ovum survey of 200 treasurers in 23 countries, only 13% of multinational corporates can see their real-time global cash position. Limited visibility is just one of numerous challenges. Treasury teams need to achieve a greater degree of centralization and regain control of their company’s most important asset: cash.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- The nature of today’s international cash management challenges
- Strategies that can be implemented at the headquarter level
- How a global company can implement best practices
- Where the economy is headed
Please join us for this comprehensive presentation which will include a question and answer session.
This seminar is approved for 1 CTP/CCM recertification credit by the Association for Financial Professionals.
