Treasury change being driven by risk management

Corporate risk management issues are driving corporate treasurers to re-evaluate the way they organise their treasury operations, according to a report by Nordic Financial Systems, the financial services provider.

Volatile market conditions and the recent spotlight on executive ability have meant corporate risk management is a key concern. Other important factors include the increasingly bright corporate governance spotlight on executive decision-making, and the effects of globalisation and the possibilities for further efficiency that this represents.

The organisational options, according to the report, include the creation of a shared service centre, the outsourcing of treasury operations to a third-party, or centralisation to an in-house treasury operation.

Rather than choosing between the options, however, it is likely that the three will be combined. The survey notes: "It is most likely that in the future we will find that there is a hybrid of different solutions for the treasury organisations, where no single one will prevail over any other."

Representatives from 25 global associations of corporate treasurers were interviewed, as well as 20 global treasuries.
