A TMI roundtable in association with D+H
In May 2015, a panel of leading corporate treasurers and both international and local banks gathered to discuss some of the most important priorities for corporate treasurers in UAE, and how the banks are responding to these evolving needs. The following is an edited transcript of this conversation. With thanks to panellists, participants and D+H for sponsoring this event.

What we would like to focus on first is today’s priorities and drivers for change in corporate treasury. Corporate treasury has evolved considerably in the Middle East, with far closer parallels with global best practices than five or 10 years ago. Not only are treasurers looking after bank relationships and cost management but also liquidity, funding, enterprise risk management and so on.
