By March 10, 2021No Comments

NeuGroup’s first half meeting cycle kicks off this month with four peer group meetings in the next few weeks. 

Today, NeuGroup kicks off its 2021 semiannual virtual meetings in full force with the Foreign Exchange Group 1 meeting. Through the next few weeks, a number of peer group meetings will follow, setting our first-half meeting cycle in motion. 

  • Semiannual peer group meetings are the core offering of NeuGroup, and the primary venue through which members engage with one another. Peer groups have historically met twice a year in person in one-to-two-day sessions with the purpose of strengthening relationships through personal interaction, sponsor-led education sessions, and member-only sessions for sharing best practices.  

March 10-11: Foreign Exchange Group 1 H1 2021 Meeting, sponsored by Standard Chartered: new norms in risk management, frameworks, data and application. 

  • The semi-annual meeting for FX group 1 tackles managing FX in the “new norm;” the analytics involved in developing a new risk management framework; transitioning from one exposure ID tool to another; and the pros and cons of hedging China with CNH vs. CNY. 

March 17: NeuGroup for Mega-Cap Treasurers H1 2021 Meeting 

  • NeuGroup for Mega-Cap Treasurers is a leading forum for peer knowledge exchange on topical treasury issues for today’s strategically-minded practitioner. Members will discuss timely topics including sustainability and will assess what has been learned over the last year and which changes will likely be permanent. 

March 18-19: Foreign Exchange Group 2 H1 2021 Meeting, sponsored by HSBC:  the “Asia Corridor,” EM currencies and FX program restructuring. 

  • The semi-annual meeting for FX group 2 takes on the hedge changes required as a result of a business re-org in one case and a new forecasting regime in another; the “Asia corridor” (China and India); and challenges in emerging markets hedging and trade execution. 

March 24: NeuGroup for Asia Treasury H1 2021, sponsored by Standard Chartered: automating treasury processes with digitization. 

  • This session will explore opportunities for automating Treasury processes. Our sponsor, Standard Chartered Bank, will kick off discussions with a blockchain initiative to digitize the trade finance process. In addition, we will look at the challenges associated with the data digitization agenda of reporting, analytics, and processes such as AP/AR, which contains third party information beyond Treasury’s purview.
