Euromoney has been covering transaction banking for many years, but this is the first time we have published an annual transaction services guide, reflecting our enhanced focus on and coverage of a business area that is crucial to banks and their clients.
In this year’s guide, we explore three interesting and important themes that encapsulate why the transaction banking business is crucial, how corporate client demand is changing and when exactly the renminbi will become a top-three payments and settlement currency.
In addition to that, read what group treasurers and chief financial officers of some of the world’s largest companies have to say on banking relationships, the impact of new financial regulation and how their role has changed irrevocably since the 2008 crisis.
