TMI 179

The Editor, reports from this year's Sibos conference for the cover story of the October 2009 issue of TMI. From the corporate treasurers' point of view Sibos is often viewed as somewhat of a 'single issue' event, yet so many promising ideas were explored at this year's Sibos - with a new emphasis on collaboration - that it may well be seen as a tipping point for the payments industry in the future.

In last month's issue of TMI a new series of articles addressing the topics that matter most to treasurers was introduced in association with J.P. Morgan. Linda McLaughlin-Moore and Chris Winter continue this series by exploring the opportunities and barriers to transactional and process efficiency amongst both banks and corporate treasuries.

TMI 179 also contains a two part special feature that investigates the implications of one of the most important mergers in recent years: the merger of Dresdner Bank into Commerzbank in May 2009 to form one new leading bank. Notably, an interview with Martin Blessing, the CEO of Commerzbank, is included as the first part of this article.

Following her recent appointment as President of Global Corporate Banking for the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the executive interview in the October 2009 issue is with Catherine P. Bessant.

Our regular EACT monthly news article can also be found in this issue of TMI Magazine, alongside articles examining the latest developments regarding Liquidity Management (including two articles that focus on the potential of Money Market Funds), Hedge Accounting, Working Capital Management, Supply Chain Finance, and much more.
