Banking relationships and operational efficiency

One of the main focuses for boardroom executives in 2015 will be determining how to execute business strategy whilst remaining compliant in an increasingly regulated environment.

This webinar examines how Know Your Customer (KYC) regulation is impacting the corporate treasurer, their banking relationships and their ability to focus on revenue generating activities for the company.

KYC places a significant reporting and due diligence burden on both banks and their clients. The system is leading to duplicate processes, increased costs and inefficiencies. In this webinar we take a deep dive into the particular challenges for the corporate treasurer and how the industry is looking to solve them.

You will learn:

  • the impact of KYC regulation on the corporate treasurer
  • how the industry is looking to address the problem
  • how you should act to limit the impact on your banking activities
  • what role technology can play
  • what we can expect further down the track
