Treasury Conference (webinar series)

Post COVID Treasury: navigating the inherent opportunities and threats

About this webinar series

Over the course of four consecutive weeks, our 2021 virtual conference will focus on the state of the Treasury profession in the "new normal" of the pandemic and the potential opportunities and threats for your business as the world slowly recovers. 

The conference will explore this theme with a series of "lightning talks" by experts in the areas of treasury, tax, regulatory developments, and cyber-security. We will also do a deep dive on Digital Treasury, exploring opportunities inherent in financial transformations and the potential to optimise finance processes through point solutions. Finally, we will cover green financing and ESG bonds, highlighting innovations within this space and the impact on Treasury.

Although delivered in a different format than our traditional Treasury Conferences, we are delighted by this year's great line-up of speakers and topics and hope that you will be able to join during these exciting webinars.

  • Tuesday 25 May 2021 | Digital Treasury - Part 1
  • Tuesday 1 June 2021 | Digital Treasury - Part 2

Speakers & Content Details

The overall trend towards digitalisation of business processes and the expanding role of Treasury have increased and diversified technology requirements. Often, these specific use cases are not sufficiently covered by the core technology landscape of an organisation. In this session, we will elaborate on the many potential components of a best-practice Treasury technology environment, their interaction, and, subsequently, have a closer look at four different best-of-breed providers active in the Treasury technology ecosystem. Speakers will jointly discuss their specific solutions, overall market trends and their view of the future of best-of-breed solutions vis-à-vis the corporate technology backbone.
