TMI 172

2009 is already promising to be a memorable year, and despite the general sense of negativity which prevails, one hopes that it will ultimately be remembered for the right reasons. The inauguration of Barack Obama has resulted in a surge of optimism worldwide, not only in the United States. We are also delighted to introduce a variety of pertinent and pragmatic corporate case studies and insights in this edition of TMI.

ABB and Microsoft join Citi and SunGard to share their experiences of SWIFT Corporate Access, highlighted in the Special Feature article, as an important way in which corporate treasurers can manage their bank risk and create bank independence, as well as enhance their operational risk controls. Antony Barnes, Group Treasurer of Experian plc, also describes his experience of managing the treasury needs of a FT-100 company.

Looking at the wider financial supply chain and working capital agenda, Cumberland Farms discuss their implementation of electronic payments with Bank of America and Wayne Whitaker, Director of International Treasury at Techdata outlines his experience of leveraging the financial supply chain to support enhanced working capital management. In addition to sharing corporate experiences, we are delighted to introduce Lisa Robins of JP Morgan who shares her expertise on treasury centralisation in China, and Tim Shaw of IMX who describes the issue of FX automation.

Finally, following various highly successful features during 2008 on career success in treasury, we are delighted to welcome Dr Linda Taylor who presents the first part of a two-part feature on using non-traditional skills to achieve career success.
