Asia’s economy is going from strength to strength. Backed by strong currencies, increased trade activity and domestic consumption, Asian corporates are now setting out to expand, invest and grow their businesses. At the heart of these activities is technology – the key to accelerating growth.
But technological changes are a challenge for corporate treasuries in the region. Demanding expectations from tech-savvy stakeholders as well as the increasing volume of work data are some of the realities CFOs and treasurers are facing today.
Meanwhile, centralization remains an important strategy as Asian finance hubs including Singapore and Hong Kong continue to offer incentives in the space. Technology is revolutionizing the payment landscape. Asian governments led the charge in digital payments on the back of regulatory reforms. Application programming interface (API) has also found its way into corporate treasury as adoption of virtual accounts increased. Intra Asean trade is also on the rise. Treasurers are taking a closer look at their supply chains, focusing on how they can adopt environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards in this area. Distributor finance is also at the top of corporate agenda as well as China’s Belt and Road initiative that could impact businesses. As Asia enters a new phase of growth, how prepared are corporate treasurers to optimize technology and capture opportunities arising from this new era?
The Asset Events proudly presents its 4th Asia Treasury and Trade Summit, a strategic one-day event which will bring together the region’s most innovative and influential CFOs and treasurers to highlight the key trends and innovative solutions that are reshaping corporate treasury in the region.
