Citi’s Ron Chakravarti discusses the keys to treasury success on a new episode of the Strategic Finance Lab podcast.

Few people in the world of banking know as much about how corporate treasury teams can raise their games and bring more value to companies than Ron Chakravarti, head of global treasury advisory at Citi Treasury and Trade Solutions. His insights are backed by the experience of advising hundreds of companies looking to improve their management of liquidity, working capital and risk.

  • In the latest episode of NeuGroup’s Strategic Finance Lab podcast available on Apple and Spotify, Mr. Chakravarti shares those insights with NeuGroup founder and CEO Joseph Neu. Their conversation includes takeaways from Treasury Leadership: Does it Matter?, a Citi GPS study Mr. Chakravarti co-authored.
  • Based on a survey of over 300 Citi clients, the study concludes that companies that deliver superior financial performance also have top-performing treasury leaders and teams.

“The data does come through, that treasury leadership does matter,” he says in the podcast. “And the investment and deployment of technology is a key part of getting there.”

  • A self-described “citizen of the world,” Mr. Chakravarti also discusses his upbringing—including stints living in India, the UK, the US, Hong Kong and Singapore—and his lifelong love of reading science fiction.
