Innovations in treasury technology and processes are vital for future-proofing the function. But how can treasurers decide who to partner with – banks, vendors or fintechs – to help implement cutting-edge solutions? Or should they innovate in-house? TMI’s Innovation Lab brought together three experts from different fields to fight their corner in this debate, while exploring how fintechs slot into the treasury ecosystem.
