Banks have worked diligently to strengthen their balance sheets, governance, liquidity and stability after the 2008 financial crisis. But despite overall improvements in financial condition, changes made to banks’ treasury departments – the epicenters of financial institutions – are inadequate to manage significant business risks. In this accessible strategy paper, consultants Pascal Vogt and Clemens Elgeti discuss the opportunities and challenges executives face in revamping their treasuries to better steer their firms’ diverse activities and gain a competitive edge. getAbstract recommends this highly technical but nuanced analysis to banking and treasury executives.
In this summary, you will learn
- What role a bank’s treasury department plays,
- Why the treasury function needs a new operating model and
- What benefits a transformed treasury unit offers to banks.
