Welcome to the latest edition of the Rethinking treasury newsletter.

“Rethinking Treasury” aims to help corporate treasurers prepare for upcoming challenges by providing best practice expertise, insight and analysis from HSBC subject matter experts and industry leaders.

This year we sat down with 6 Corporate Treasurers to look back on their careers and share insights on the treasury function including its challenges by answering our Fab 5.

  • What experience has been most valuable to you along the way? 
  • What is the biggest challenge you currently face?
  • How is the performance of your treasury group measured?
  • What takes up most of your time?
  • How is technology affecting their treasury function?

We thought it would be appropriate for a year-end review - the complete version of all the newsletters published this year can be found on the links below and are found on the GBM website and the HSBC GBM LinkedIn page.
