A gradual increase in responsibility and status over the past few years has placed the corporate treasurer firmly at the forefront of core business operations and strategy. Driven by global market changes, new business priorities and a stronger emphasis on better risk management and transparency, the role has transitioned from the back office to center stage.
This greater recognition of the unique value treasurers bring to their organizations gives them an opportunity to shine. But the responsibility has never been greater. Today’s treasurer must be forward-looking and quick to identify risks from all angles; a master of technical skill and experience yet never losing sight of the big picture, able to take a holistic view of the business to ensure that the treasury function is in synch with everything else, and confident in communicating complex matters to the board.
The Financial Times and Deutsche Bank are delighted to be returning to the US for the second Global Treasury Leadership Retreat Series, which started in Singapore and will move on to Europe in the summer. This special retreat is designed to give treasurers valuable high-level insight into the macro developments shaping the corporate world today and the opportunity to engage with peers from different sectors in practical action-focused discussion on the most pressing issues they face.
