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.
