The 'virtual reality' of treasury - Global Treasury Benchmark Survey 2017

Feb 2017

Capturing the views of 220 treasurers and Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) worldwide, our latest Global Treasury Benchmark Survey reveals that the success of the treasury profession is dependent on how well it adapts to - and operates in - an increasingly virtual environment.

Treasury's scope continues to expand and is now a company-wide process - it no longer operates as a single 'department'. With treasury processes becoming increasingly virtual, treasurers need to collaborate more with the business, shared services and banks and raise their game in IT security, valuation and financial risk management to succeed in today’s environment. 

Key findings:

  • 67% of people involved in treasury processes do not report directly to the treasurer
  • Cash flow forecasting is a priority
  • Rising cybersecurity threats mean treasurers need to take action to safeguard assets
