Thriving in Volatile Times
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused huge disruptions in people’s lives and created significant challenges to organisations. Many companies’ operations have been negatively impacted by COVID-19; cash and liquidity have deteriorated faster than expected.
Treasury has been on the front line of organisations, facing different challenges such as variance in cash flow forecasting, disruption in financial supply chain, volatility in currency exposures, changes in counterparty risk management, negotiation for emergency funding solutions, long term business continuity plan etc. The economic impact of this crisis is still uncertain and recovery will take months or years depending on the industry. Changes in consumer spending and market demand will also reshape the economic landscape locally and globally.
In this webinar in collaboration with Deloitte, we will explore how corporate treasury could thrive on and recover gradually along this journey by looking at relationships between internal and external stakeholders, changes in working capital strategies, funding sources as well as treasury operations in order to meet the evolving business needs.
Deloitte Treasury Advisory will be doing a short presentation followed by an exclusive industry panel with treasurers from Isuzu Motors, Paypal and Rio Tinto sharing their experience and vision in thriving on during this crisis.
