The Liquidity Crisis webinar series
Data and Risk Management in Times of Crises
Major operational and market risks stemming from the global economic downturn and uncertainty around exit strategies of countries in lockdown have placed treasurers under immense pressure. The successful sourcing, selection and application of data, as well as building a more robust analytics function, offer corporate treasurers ways to make sense of the macroeconomic information required to weather the storm created by Covid-19.
Yet having access to data is merely the first phase of the solution. How can treasurers use data to get the best deals on FX? What data tools are available to treasurers to help them manage operational risk? How can treasurers turn data into strategic value? And how can they build a robust internal analytics function to make sense of third-party or internal platforms?
Join this on-demand webinar as leading treasurers discuss how they utilise data to improve their risk management functions in the current crisis.
