Corporate Treasury Management and market volatility are key concerns for today’s Treasurer. Volatility stems from issues such as the unwinding of the Fed’s balance sheet, rising geopolitical tensions and tariffs, and the impact of COVID-19. Liquidity and cash forecasting, and hedging against currency and interest rate volatilities have always been very important issues for Treasury. In today’s increasingly volatile markets, highly variable input prices and regulatory pressures compound their importance.

The talk will focus on building up a currency exchange strategy for corporate businesses, the latest currency hedging techniques, and key questions corporates need to answer for better treasury risk mitigation. The speaker will cover: four steps to managing FX risks in the current volatile conditions, the top FX risk management mistakes, what’s in store for Corporate Treasury in 2021, and the top currencies to watch in 2021 in relation to economy outputs and business forecasts.
