Many organizations have significant amounts of capital tied up in their trade finance processes. In order to resolve this, it requires an analysis of one’s technology infrastructure. What efficiencies can be gained through digitalization of an organization’s trade processes? What obstacles are slowing change in this area and how can they be overcome? It is possible that reading more about digital transformation would prove to be wise.
This panel-type session will explore how newer digital tools and approaches represent an opportunity to optimize working capital management through an expanded perspective of trade finance.

The Liquidity Risk Survey was first run in 2011, probing treasury and finance practitioners on their views surrounding managing liquidity, investing, borrowing, and various risks. This webinar will cover highlights from the survey’s most recent iteration. With a total of 11 years of longitudinal data, the webinar will consider shifts over time in areas such as counterparty exposure monitoring, investment vehicle use, ESG programs, the relative prioritization of safety, liquidity, and yield, and more.
The treasury management system (TMS) automates and streamlines treasury’s core tasks, forming a central dashboard for the treasury function and freeing staff for more strategic work. Recent years have seen some TMS vendors expanding into enterprise-wide solutions for tracking and managing liquidity, giving rise to the distinct enterprise liquidity management (ELM) category. From the basic TMS to the highly advanced TMS and the more comprehensive ELM system, each solution serves a segment of treasury departments. This webinar will cover the current TMS and ELM landscapes, innovations, and leading practices for selection and implementation.
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?
