About this Event

This interactive workshop course is apt for participants working in and with corporate treasuries and need to keep pace with developments in treasury risk management and technological advancements as well as growing pressures of regulatory, governance and compliance issues. It engages the participants in examining the challenges and issues of risk management and governance and drives forth the case that managing risks holistically with a proper risk culture and framework is imperative to the survival of the treasury entity as much as the corporate institution


The corporate treasury function is no longer just dealing with the routine daily cash flows and working capital requirements of the entity. Over and above these traditional roles, the corporate treasurer as a value agent is now involved in strategic planning and striking winning relationships with banks and other agents in sourcing and applying funds as well as a proactive business partner with the business units within the enterprise. This enhanced and upgraded role of the corporate treasurer comes at a time when uncertainties pre-dominate not just the financial marketplace but also the way in which business activities are being reshaped with exponential technological advances. Intended to be edu-training, the course offers a pragmatic understanding of corporate treasury risk management with less quan- toxication and more qualitative rationalization.

Upon completion of course, participants will be able to:

  • take hold of increasingly new demands of the corporate treasury function in the wake of the Global Financial Crisis and technological advancements and attendant new risks (digitization, block chain, cryptocurrency evolution, cyber-security concerns)
  • Appreciate the challenges faced by the corporate treasury to provide a more strategic role to the other units in the organization and in building rapport with banking and capital market partners
  • Draw lessons from the financial crisis and other risk "mishaps" so to improve the risk management culture and discipline in the light of new regulatory, governance,compliance and technological pressures
  • Take a strategic role in addressing financial (interest rate, FX, equity and commodity) risks confronting the corporation
