12:30-13:15, Thursday 29 September 2022

Discover new technology solutions and strategies designed to help you be more cash-smart.

Given the growing enterprise exposure to inflation and potential recession, rising interest rates, and skyrocketing currency volatility and hedging costs, CFOs and their treasury teams are rethinking strategies to optimize their finances. And treasurers in particular are experiencing new challenges when it comes to managing cash and liquidity as once again ‘Cash is King’.

But help is at hand - there are new practices and technology solutions that can be leveraged to deliver more effective use of cash resources. This session explored how you can utilise technology and data analytics, including APIs, AI and business intelligence, to better forecast, reconcile, and mobilise liquidity across your enterprise.


The conversation between technology experts and treasurers answered the following questions:

  • what is the critical value that APIs can play?
  • how does the ambition of real-time treasury affect this discussion?
  • what tools can help us improve cash forecasting?
