Panel Discussion: 2024 Treasury Trends | December 12

2023 is coming to a close with notable upheaval. Significant wars continue in Europe and the Middle East; central banks have increased borrowing costs to the highest rate in well over a decade; inflation has pulled back from the peak but remains above targets; borrowing costs and access to capital have tightened; FX risks remain elevated; and many CFOs are exhibiting increased caution. Several questions come up as we consider the outlook for 2024:
• How will companies need to respond to this greater recognition of the risk level?
• Are companies going to leverage their balance sheet for liquidity and supporting their trading partners?
• How does technology fit into the picture as an enabler of overhead scalability and financial resiliency?
Join this fast-paced panel discussion about the volatility of the environment and how corporate treasurers expect to manage through these more turbulent times.
