Top Issues Facing Treasury Departments in 2015 – A Look Ahead
Date: January 15, 2015
Location: The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto
Time: 11:30 am Registration/ 12:00 pm Lunch and Presentation
Since the financial crisis, the role of the corporate treasurer has evolved dramatically with a shift to a broader set of responsibilities and an increased strategic role in corporate decision-making. And this is certainly not abating anytime soon.
With treasury departments assuming a leading role in organizations, the challenges are many — especially in an environment where economic uncertainty is the new normal. In the coming year, ongoing regulatory reform, centralization of activities, and technological shifts will present additional challenges for corporate treasury departments striving for efficiency, integration and control.
Citi Canada’s John Landry will look at five issues likely to impact companies in 2015 and, citing Citi’s own Treasury Diagnostics research, show how treasurers can take a lead role in many activities beyond the traditional ones and carve out the new breed of treasury.
