Summary

The future of a digitalized treasury ecosystem rests on treasury professionals’ readiness to adopt it. An extensive 2018 survey of top corporate financial managers in diverse industries found that responses span the spectrum from acceptance to ambivalence. Treasurers’ takes on the degree to which digital disruption is affecting their work vary by sector.
