The Federal Reserve has changed course since the global financial crisis to develop new, more resilient frameworks in approaching monetary policy. This includes policy instruments, the specific markets in which the central bank participates, and the size and structure of the central bank’s balance sheet. These fiscal policies and structural reforms play an important role in strengthening the U.S. economy. In this session you will learn when, why and how the new policy tools are used.
If you have listened to any discussions about generational issues at work, then you have undoubtedly been told there are four distinct generations operating side-by-side in today’s working world. You have then been told the differences between those four generations, and that you need to just deal with all these different people, because they are not going away and they are not going to change how they operate. However, if you have ever been frustrated by how impossible it seems to employ four different strategies to manage four distinct generations, and if you have ever felt like you are the only one who is being asked to make any changes, then “Us Vs. Them” is exactly what you need, because there really are not four generations. In this hysterical presentation, you will learn a simpler way of looking at your own generational picture, and you will also learn how to understand, recognize, and resolve every generational issue facing today’s workforce.
This keynote session will dissect the latest economic trends–from trade dynamics to labor market fluctuations, inflationary pressures, to the future of the economic expansion. James Glassman will also provide relevant, timely insights on the world around us-all with a focus on breaking through the noise to understand today’s business environment challenges.
Plumbing the depths of the seemingly infinite sea of spreadsheets is still a known task in treasury, although the negative consequences are common knowledge among business departments. The processes involved are manual, time-consuming, and treasury & finance teams frequently struggle to obtain the information they need from other departments. Luckily, the AI revolution comes with a myriad of benefits. Technology doesn’t suffer from some of the dilemmas humans may face in finance which could affect people’s ability to make good decisions: computers do not need vacations or sleep, they are less biased and can do the job more precise. These are obstacles in which AI, in comparison to managing spreadsheets manually, can excel.
By implementing solutions that utilize big data and artificial intelligence technology, companies can effectively gain better insights into their Cash forecasting without having to go through this continuous labor-intensive process. Integrating business data on your cash flows can have the potential to unlock more cash than ever. Moreover, the AI-powered Cash forecasting accumulates its full power and reveals its grander purpose after a certain period of time. By collecting previous data and comparing numerous simulations it continuously improves, creating new simulations and revealing hidden patterns. By looking into more complex patterns, it allows for creating data analysis to a higher degree of quality than ever before. Eventually helping treasury and finance departments quickly obtain and present a single and accurate version of the truth.
Enhancing technology to optimize treasury processes, controls and reporting is now an essential treasury requirement rather than an optional commodity. A TMS selection and implementation is a risky undertaking! But Corporates demand − and in some cases, are required to have − current, global financial information with sophisticated analytics and intuitive reporting.
We will describe the common stumbling blocks for a technology initiative, and will provide strategies to successfully mitigate the traps that can cause delays, overruns or both. We’ll specifically discuss:
Practitioners look at the current landscape and how Real Time Payments are being deployed. MThe speakers will look at the use cases and real-life deployment, as well as the industries that are acting as the fast-adopters. Additionally, they will also discuss the dynamic of the percentage of FI’s currently on-boarded, what timing will be drawn from the ubiquity of the system and, importantly, how Request for Payment to request funds from counter parties will look like (and how quickly it will be deployed). Finally, a review of RTP benefits and how both parties are benefiting, how practitioners can develop their own ROI models as a criteria for deployment, as well as the onboarding process will be reviewed.

The purpose of this session:
This session will cover common misconceptions about the CTP Exam that lead candidates to make assumptions that are incorrect. Incorrect assumptions can set up candidates for failure even before they embark on a course of study and exam preparation. Learning how Essentials of Treasury Management (ETM5) is created and how the CTP Exam is developed is the starting point for enabling candidates to have a factual and realistic understanding of what they need to learn in order to earn the credential. This session also offers candidates proven tips and techniques for preparing for the CTP Exam and for ensuring the best chance of passing.
Despite being the most important function for treasurers, traditional Cash Forecasting delivers inaccurate and unreliable results even in the short term, rendering them unsuitable for decision making at an executive level. In addition to unreliability, the process is highly inefficient with treasury teams spending the majority of their time compiling the forecast, leaving little to no time for variance analysis and accuracy improvement. However, by leveraging Artificial Intelligence algorithms exclusively built to forecast cash across all cash flow categories, the cash forecasting process has been fundamentally redefined, including the way Treasury professionals process and use the forecast. With AI, treasurers are able to increase the types of data sources leveraged and variables analyzed, replace Excel-based models, increase the frequency of forecasting and ensure that every forecast is subject to variance analysis to help improve accuracy over time.
