    Create a Best-in-Class Commercial Card Program—the Not So New Payment Channel

    Commercial card programs have been around for many years, but in most cases these programs historically included T&E expenses and a select number of procurement transactions. Now, as key stakeholders across the buyer's organization realize the benefits associated with commercial cards and with the increase in fintech innovation, commercial card programs are being structured to capture more, if not all, payment transactions across the entire organization.

    Getting Credit Where Credit is Due

    Once upon a time supply chain management was a rather mundane and paper-intensive task. Granted it wasn't easy, but the main thrust was that after a negotiated price for goods, managers were mainly concerned with getting needed supplies moving, product out the door, and getting paid. Make the sale, find the most economical way to get from point A to point B—without disruption—and get paid. Upfront if you can.

    Five Corporate Treasury Trends to Watch in 2017

    Reflecting on 2016, we note a year filled with a great deal of geopolitical change, and closer to home, a trend-rich treasury environment presenting both challenges and opportunities. We are reminded of corporate treasury’s role as the principal risk manager of the organization, and the longer-term trend of treasury becoming more strategic as its mandate expands. While no crystal ball is available, this environment of change, challenge and opportunity looks to carry on into 2017.

    Fintechs Transforming Supply-Chain Finance

    Multinational corporations (MNCs) face a myriad of challenges and arguably the most important one is staying competitive during periods of uncertainty and increasing regulation, as global interconnectedness continues. In order to successfully navigate this uncertain environment, MNCs must develop sustainable working capital strategies and build cash positions that underpin these strategies, whether they are for expansion, M&A, dividends or buybacks.

    Sink or Swim: Navigating Pension Funds in a Low Interest Rates Environment

    After more than a decade of low interest rates, combined with a volatile equity market and fallout from the 2008 subprime and European crises, US corporate pension plans have faced continued deficits with today’s average funding ratio at 75.7% (Source: Milliman as of August 2016). At current levels, pension fund deficits can impact corporate valuations and can potentially handicap corporate development plans.

    Behind Every Next-Generation Treasurer is Automation and Attentive Vendor Support

    With FX top of mind, companies are seeking ways to hone their FX management strategies and generally bring a more comprehensive approach to foreign currency risk management. One way to get to that holistic approach is through automation; good technology can help treasurers combat the lean meme of doing more with less. Companies looking to get the best from their systems need to select one that is scalable (from both a functional- and vendor-support perspective), in order to grow with companies as they expand into new markets. The provider must also be able to grow with the company's needs and be a partner and sounding board from the implementation through the life of the product.

    Are you Ready for Real-Time? Payments That Is

    Not long ago the financial services industry would have viewed payments as the ho-hum, somewhat boring part of their sales toolbox. Given the rapid pace of change and the fundamental transformation taking place across many aspects of global payments, it is now seen as one of the most exciting and potentially valuable parts of our current financial system. Are you ready for real-time? US treasury operations who operate globally are already exposed to real-time payments in international markets, but to take advantage of the increased roll-out of this functionality, treasurers should consider performing an overall review of existing processes and develop a business case for the activity required to build or modify functionality that will allow them to fully participate in the advances of real-time payments.

    We recently spoke to Thomas Halpin, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Payment Products at HSBC, to get his insight on what treasurers should be doing today to prepare for the changes ahead. Mr. Haplin noted that it is likely that clients with consider performing an overall review of existing processes and develop a business case for the activity required to build or modify functionality that will allow them to fully participate in the advances of real-time payments.

    Global Treasury: Managing Operations in Emerging Markets

    Emerging markets’ share of the global economy nearly doubled to 40% over the past 25 years. Their rising economic significance is also reflected in trade, financial flows, and remittances. In addition, emerging markets’ share of global M&A has significantly increased and is now larger than that of Western Europe. Fueled by both organic and external growth, these markets have become a major source of corporate revenues.

    As emerging markets have become a critical part of multinationals’ business mix and growth strategy, they have also created a new level of complexity for treasury functions in charge of supporting, financing, hedging and ultimately safeguarding these investments. iTreasurer has asked senior officers at Societe Generale to provide their insights into challenges raised by doing business in these geographies.
