Today’s powerful, functionally rich technology solutions are opening new horizons of value and opportunity for corporations’ treasury and finance operations.
In the past, treasury and finance were often quite distinct. Treasury focused on high value, low volume cash and risk management business, including cash positioning and mobilisation, liquidity management, FX and commodity hedging, and debt and investment management. Finance was primarily concerned with managing high volume commercial payables and receivables, and in accounting, enterprise resource planning and reporting functions. Typically, these were supported by different technology systems, with some limited level of interfacing in areas such as forecasting and ledger posting.
