Leveraging Financing Opportunities for Competitive Advantage

There can be few business leaders today who do not recognise that securing access to liquidity is critical to business continuity. Indeed, declining or negative free cash flow and unresolved future debt maturities are amongst the strongest warning signs of a company in distress. Regulation such as Basel III is putting pressure on corporations' ability to finance their business using bank debt.

Equally significantly, companies need to compete effectively with corporations that have greater access to liquidity in their home markets, such as China. Consequently, treasurers are - and should be - looking to a wider range of markets and funding sources than ever before.
