The Treasurer has always been called upon to ensure a fine balance between , leveraging multi-asset trading within limits and managing the balance sheet along with bank liquidity position keeping in mind market volatility.. Over the years this has become more complex with ever increasing and stringent regulations, lower spreads , globalization of operations and markets and hence impact of events not restricted to local markets.
What are some of those avenues which can help the treasurer overcome these challenges ?
Ability to expand volumes by attracting customer FX combined with the need for What-if Scenarios to assess the impact on Compliance Limits, P&L and Post trade Analytics to ensure ease of reporting to regulatory authorities are key for the treasurer today. Treasury must partner with business units and IT, align on a unified strategy . The key part of the strategy would be moving to an integrated Treasury and Risk Management platform. Digitization could also open up new revenue streams for bank from the treasury function.
While treasurers are getting aligned to above, the tools and means to achieve the end goals remain elusive as devising a strategy, would require a supporting framework which amongst other things should have:
- Analytics based business insights through dashboards and visualization
- Support for comprehensive asset class coverage
- Highly configurable limits management to support compliance
- Better hedging facilities through an integrated FX management across channels
- Intuitive solution and flexible reporting framework
