    Going cashless
    When it comes to simple, every day transactions, cash just doesn’t seem to be relevant anymore. Contactless cards and smart phones are increasingly replacing cash as a relatively safe, convenient and efficient way to transact. But is this transition as straightforward as it sounds?

    Banking at the frontier
    Companies in developed economies take it for granted that their cross-border transactions will be seamless. But for those working in riskier emerging markets, moving money from one place to another can create a whole host of issues that may not be apparent at first glance. In this episode of Treasury and Turbulence, Euromoney will examine some of the issues relating to moving money across borders and what new tools exist to tackle them.

    The auto industry and Brexit
    A disorderly Brexit will have implications across the economy, but few sectors demonstrate the scale of the challenge better than the auto industry, which has made an art form of cross border manufacturing that arrives just in time for the production line. In this episode, Euromoney will examine the impact that Brexit will have on the corporate treasury function. It explains the lessons treasurers can learn from disruption to the auto industry and what actions they might take to minimise disruption to their own businesses.

    The Beiersdorf story
    The early 20th century saw the emergence of the multinational corporate. But the harsh geopolitical and economic circumstances of inter-war Europe forced many companies to take extreme steps to prepare their business for the looming threat of war.In this episode, we tell the story of the German pharmaceutical company Beiersdorf – creator of Nivea beauty cream – and Willy Jacobsohn, its Jewish CEO, who in the 1930s became an early adopter of the holding company. The Beiersdorf story exemplifies the challenges many corporates faced at that time – and the innovative solutions they instigated had some surprising repercussions that went well beyond saving the business.When facing extreme geopolitical upheaval, what lessons can treasurers in the 21st century learn from the past?

    In this episode, we’ll be focusing on the disconnect between the factories where clothes are made and the biggest investment houses where those suits are worn.

    Cybersecurity: Kerckhoffs' Principle & why attack is the best form of defence
    In the unceasing struggle against cyber criminals - where hackers seem always to be one step ahead – companies are increasingly realising the best form of defence could be to leave themselves open to attack. Rather than trying to outwit hackers, these companies offer “bug bounties”, paying hackers to attack their systems and report back the weaknesses they find. Hear from the people in charge of organising cyber defence at some of the world’s biggest corporations, and the ex-hackers they are paying to break into their systems.
