How Treasury Can Set Standards and Steer the Business

The treasury is the steward of cash, and cash like oxygen, should be harnessed, not wasted, and used to support the most profitable business products, services and growth opportunities. In a literal sense we recognise the cash we hold in our hands, but when we manage cash we also manage proxy cash™ and this is what separates the professionals from the novices and where it gets interesting to demonstrate what treasurers could be.

Key Points

  • Expand the definitions that hold treasury back
  • A funding model view of cash flow
  • Innovative cash flow forecasting beyond money management
  • Economic and business driver cash flow forecasts
  • Scenarios, assumptions and stress testing for uncertainty
  • Managing liquidity risk and sustainability
