No-one wants to re-live every moment of a conference (especially not the after party). So, here is TMI’s take on the top themes coming out of this year’s EuroFinance International Cash Management conference, held in Geneva from 26-28 September, without the blow-by-blow account.
Reflecting on an insightful few days in Geneva, it’s clear how much has changed in the industry; and yet how little has moved on for treasurers at a fundamental level – especially when I think back to my first EuroFinance International experience ten years ago.
Of course, the operating environment is very different from a decade ago – talk of the financial crisis has been replaced by frustrations over Brexit negotiations getting nowhere fast. Crisis-driven regulation and the push towards financial transparency has also led to a variety of challenges and opportunities for the treasury community, including the rise of one of the hot topics at this year’s conference: open banking.
