HR_182022435_BACKGROUND.jpg

WELCOME TO THE FOURTH EDITION OF JOURNEYS TO TREASURY, A UNIQUE COLLABORATION BETWEEN BNP PARIBAS, PWC, SAP AND THE EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION OF CORPORATE TREASURERS (EACT). JOINED BY SOME OF THE WORLD’S LEADING TREASURERS, WE OFFER RICH, DIVERSE INSIGHTS ON THE TRENDS, CHALLENGES AND PRIORITIES THAT ARE SHAPING BEST PRACTICES IN TREASURY BOTH TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE.

The treasury – and the treasurer - of 2025 is likely to be almost unrecognisable to that ten or even five years earlier. Treasury is not becoming less relevant: in fact, it is becoming more recognised and valued as the need to manage liquidity and risk internationally becomes more important and visible. In addition, the role itself is expanding, leading to a new set of skills requirements is changing, while the combination of data and available technology is transforming treasury.

Embracing change can be daunting, and it can sometimes seem that other treasuries are great strides ahead of your own. In reality, while some treasuries have digitised more fully than others, everyone has organisational, human, technology and budget constraints that shape their priorities and capacity. Journeys to Treasury illustrates what is possible, what might be desirable, and some of the challenges and opportunities along the way.

Payments and Collections.jpg

PAYMENTS AND COLLECTIONS

GET READY FOR REAL-TIME

As digital business models emerge, new payment methods are proliferating. Treasurers can play a key role in shaping the future of the business; today, however, few treasurers are playing an active role in the company’s payment and collection strategy.


FX Risk Management.jpg

FOREIGN EXCHANGE RISK MANAGEMENT

ADDING CERTAINTY, BUILDING TRUST

Managing foreign FX risk remains one of treasurers’ highest priorities, and FX volatility can make a major difference to earnings. Treasurers are renewing their focus on hedging strategies and optimal execution to manage risk and reduce the impact of volatility.

TECHNOLOGY ENABLERS

NEW APPROACHES TO FAMILIAR PROBLEMS

Technology is transforming the experience of all treasuries, with expanding technology opportunities and lower barriers to adoption. To take advantage of new solutions, treasurers and their partners across the business need to adopt a data-driven mindset.

THE FUTURE TREASURY

EQUIPPING FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW

Treasury is still a relatively new profession, yet has become increasingly important as corporations expand internationally. In a fast-changing business and digital environment, and with an expanding set of responsibilities, how can treasurers prepare for the future?
