As a strategic adviser to the board, the treasury now has a bigger voice within banks. In a recent survey by Misys, 86% of treasurers felt their role had grown. As treasury's remit continues to expand, its challenges are multi-faceted, juggling enterprise-wide risks, operational tasks and strategic analysis.
The increasingly dense regulatory framework is not making things easier. On one hand, the treasury is still figuring out ways to efficiently handle regulations that are already effective such as Emir, Dodd-Frank and IFRS 13. On the operational side, in order to make faster and more meaningful decisions, the treasury needs to have real-time view of risk exposures. This requires intraday reporting and real-time tracking of payment flows.
