Rethinking Treasury: The road ahead

The role of treasury is changing

The impact of the pandemic has accelerated the pace, transforming this function into a more strategic role while optimising traditional workflows in a stressed environment. To meet the challenges of tomorrow, treasurers and CFOs must continue to evolve their roles.

Treasurers and CFOs look to the horizon

As a follow-up to our 2018 report on corporate risk management, HSBC and Acuris surveyed over 630 CFOs and senior treasury professionals from multinational corporates across a range of sectors from June to July 2021. We discovered that, from the impact of the pandemic to the drive for digitisation, CFOs and corporate treasurers are navigating through the risk management challenge.

The need for clear lines of communication between CFOs and treasurers has never been more critical to secure both the financial health and growth of a business.
