Treasury Dragons invites you to their event

The future of FX - what do treasurers want from technology platforms and their banks?

About this event

Once upon a time, the bank was the first port of call for treasurers who needed to handle FX transactions. Bank platforms and bank representatives were often the best routes to access global markets or manage risk.

In today’s era of ‘Best of Breed’ technology solutions, is that still true? Could the future of corporate banking be less one of ‘personalised service provider’ and more one of ‘systems integrator’, making data available to multiple technology platforms, each fulfilling a specific treasury need?

New research from Hedgebook suggests the pandemic has forced a change as banks and brokers were unable to get face-to-face with customers.

In this special Treasury Dragons live event, we’ll talk to a bank, a technology provider, a consultant and a corporate treasury expert to map out the future relationship between corporates, technology providers, and banks, with a special emphasis on global markets and FX.

Join us online at 9 am (BST) on Thursday 24th June for an hour of insight that could change the way you look at FX solutions for corporate treasury.
