The Assistant Treasurers’ Group of Thirty gets a sneak peek at how Amazon is embracing technology.
Today’s treasury professionals are being bombarded with buzzwords, acronyms and phrases such as bots, AI, blockchain and digital transformation. And few companies are as good at cutting through the confusion and using technology as Amazon, which hosts the AT30 on September 20-21 in Seattle, Wash. Members will visit a checkout-free Amazon Go store, which is sure to spark conversation about new technologies and applications for broader use. Learn how other corporates are taking advantage of web services, data visualization, automation and other tools.
Day 1 also includes a session on in-house bank add-ons, retoolings and new builds. In the wake of US tax reform and Brexit, many MNCs are making changes to IHB platforms, while others are putting them in place for the first time. What’s the new state-of-the-art model for IHBs from the perspective of greenfield setups as well as for adding to or retooling existing IHBs? Meeting sponsor UniCredit will give a quick overview of the IHB evolution and touch on the advantages of IHBs over cash pools and intercompany lending programs without IHBs.
Post-US tax reform, US MNCs are revisiting their capital structures and capital allocation. Are capital decisions being made methodically or evaluated on a case-by-case basis? And how are these decisions evaluated? Members will share examples of substantial changes made to their capital approaches and the processes being used to determine how much and where to invest.
Also on the agenda: an update on Euro capital markets and a discussion on treasury roles and responsibilities.
