The Fed has raised interest rates several times since December 2015, presenting an evolving environment for managing cash. As a result, businesses and banks now operate in a market wherein capital and liquidity requirements have increased, and the time value of operating cash – which can include credit interest, investment returns and earnings allowances – can vary even within an organization (e.g., for intraday and overnight balances). A result of a series of market and legislative events, these changes require organizations to understand balance sheet impacts (LCR/SLR, etc.) to their cash holdings, and the outlook for managing the needs and levels of operating cash in the current market and into the future.
Presenters in this session, including representatives from a leading global financial institution and a senior treasury corporate practitioner, will review these trends, along with useful tools – old and new – that exist to help optimize and manage cash during these market fluctuations.
