Treasury Organization and Strategy
The design, development and implementation of the most appropriate treasury structure form the core of our Treasury Organization and Strategy practice. We address questions such as:
How should global treasury be structured, what are location considerations and tax implications? What are the most practical staffing arrangements given the geographical and fiscal responsibilities assigned to treasury? What types of systems and other technology tools can be used to help treasury forecast and manage cash, reduce operational and banking expenses and enhance treasury decision-making? What are the reporting requirements and control levels for treasury in a Sarbanes-Oxley environment?
These questions become even more critical during major structural or financial changes such as integrating new acquisitions, setting up a business in a different country or region, implementing an ERP system, or the introduction of a revised business model.
We help clients design and develop the most appropriate structure for their specific situation. Our approach begins with a thorough assessment of each company’s unique requirements including performance metrics, tax situation and objectives, customer and vendor requirements, banking relationships and credit lines and treasury integration with business operations. This is followed by the development of alternative structures and validation of all recommendations with key corporate stakeholders. This helps clients to:
Rationalize bank selection Improve treasury operating and accounting practices Identify treasury centralization opportunities Evaluate outsourcing opportunities Assess treasury software, intranets and ERP integration issues Develop the right balance of human and systems resources
Treasury Alliance delivers realistic and practical recommendations. Partner involvement in all phases of a project provides each client with superior results.
