101-Managing Cash on the Peak of Mount Rates
4/25/24, 9:00-10:00
The markets have remained in consistent shifting winds and now as the Fed looks out from the apex of their hiking campaign, SEC Money Market Fund reform takes hold, and the macroeconomic landscape continues to evolve, liquidity investors must remain vigilant on the peak (and the upcoming decent). Please join Goldman Sachs Asset Management and  a corporate practitioner as we explore our views on the policy easing path, the duration sweet spot, short-end supply/demand dynamics, the broader economic outlook, and many other key topics for treasurers in the 2nd half of 2024.

103-Diversify and Conquer: A Treasurer’s Path to Safety Without Sacrifice
4/25/24, 11:30-12:30
Treasury professionals continually strive to maintain balance of safety/liquidity/yield in their cash portfolios. CFOs are tasked with preserving and safely growing larger pools of cash, which inherently demands increased diversification at a time when investment options are seemingly limited or in many cases, are too similar in underlying securities to affect true diversification. The need to have options beyond money market funds, ECR/bank deposits, and U.S. Treasury obligations continues to stress investment policy guardrails.
Whether it is the need to insure a portion of capital, diversify counterparty risk, address impact/mission-based initiatives, or simply having a strategy for when regulation or economic/world events threaten your credit, duration, or liquidity tolerances, there are ready solutions to help treasury professionals diversify and conquer within their operating, core, and strategic cash strategies.
Henley Smith, StoneCastle Cash Management
104-Investing Short-term Funds for the Long-term in Today’s Interest Rate Environment
4/25/24, 2:15-3:15
The higher interest rate environment has been a welcome change for investing cash. As the economic and interest rate environment evolve over the next 12-24 months, short- term fixed income may provide better risk-adjusted returns compared to money market funds. In this session, seasoned short-term portfolio manager, Seth Roman, will delve into effective strategies to take advantage of higher yields and current and future opportunities offered by the market. The session will cover the essential aspects of liquidity, quality, and diversification and how to best use these levers to avoid potential downside and prepare for an eventual change in the direction of rates. Treasury professionals can learn about dynamic portfolio positioning and how to take advantage of higher yields, while maintaining liquidity and protecting principal.

 Achieving the goals of corporate finance require that any corporate investment be financed appropriately. In general, this can be divided into long-term and short-term decisions and techniques. This track is designed for the experienced treasury professional and deals with capital investment decisions that are long-term choices: about which projects receive investment, whether to finance that investment with equity or debt, and when or whether to pay dividends to shareholders vs. stock buyback. On the other hand, the short-term decisions can be grouped under the working capital management, which focuses on managing cash and short-term borrowing and lending.

201-Beyond Crisis Management: How to Drive Growth in a High Interest Rate Environment
4/26/24, 1:15-2:15
In the current ever-changing economic terrain, businesses must be prepared to go beyond simply managing costs amidst increased borrowing expenses and constrained liquidity access.

202-Understanding Bank Connectivity during ERP Planning & Migration
4/26/24, 3:45-4:45
A few of the promised benefits of moving to a cloud ERP system include fewer technical requirements, support at all times, and reallocating company resources to value-added activities. This includes cost savings based on decommissioning IT network hardware and shifting system support from an internal resource to cloud system provider. One of the main roadblocks of these benefits is the technical integration to banking partners. These cloud ERP solutions provide technical tools but drop the development, configuration, and support of these complex integrations to the client. Many Cloud ERP clients now look to move payment processing to an independent cloud-based solution that provides real-time, internet-based communication with banks and other financial institutions to simplify support activity. Join this session for an overview of Banking Connectivity platforms to help streamline ERP Migration and fill in the gaps left by current SaaS ERP Platforms for Treasury needs.

Faster payments are all the rage in the 2020’s. However, faster shouldn’t mean wasting valuable working capital. Our session will present a production proof-of-concept, Citizens Bank and Osterman & Company, Inc’s experience making B2B payments using The Clearing House’s RTP network. The results were fabulous in one sense; payment was made precisely on the due date, which happened to be a Saturday. However, the receiving bank’s posting system provided a different result.
As we focus on the faster payments journey, B2B payers need to consider several factors when making 24/7/365 payments: how to make the best use of a line of credit, taking advantage of the best payment terms and getting discounts, and finally when will the B2B receiver actually credit your account.
This session will bring viewpoints from Citizens Bank, Osterman & Company, Inc., and The Clearing House, informing the practitioner of items to consider when choosing faster payments.

504-Breakfast Session: How Serious Are We About Winning This Ongoing Battle with Payment Fraud?
4/26/24, 8:00-9:00
It is no secret that fraud is on the rise, and it is impacting all payment channels.  Whether it is p2p fraud or b2b fraud impacting businesses of all sizes, the industry needs to do better in ensuring the safety and soundness of our payment systems.  Fraudsters are creating unauthorized transactions or altering properly authorize transactions using sophisticated schemes at times and sometimes unsophisticated schemes continue to work.  Nacha oversees the ACH Network and has developed a new risk management framework with approaches they hope can aide the industry in protecting credit push payments.  There has been work done by the Federal Reserve as well with the creation of the Fed Fraud Classifier Model.  This session we will explore these approaches and some sound practices that FIs can take to help support the user of their payment offerings.  Let’s try and figure out how serious we really are at gaining the upper hand against the fraudsters.

602-What Spider-Man Can Teach Banks About Protecting Our Customers
4/25/24, 2:15-3:15
Spider-Man had to save the citizens of New York while fighting off the Green Goblin. Alone, he was doomed to fail. But when he joined forces with the citizens, he saved the day. Like Spidey, we too face a daunting enemy: payments fraud. With the ever-mounting threat, neither banks nor customers can carry the load of fraud protection on their own. Instead of simply thinking about what products to offer, banks are asking how they can join forces with their customers to collectively combat fraud. Criminals thrive when fraud prevention efforts are fragmented between banks and customers. By removing barriers and combining forces, a new “superpower” can be achieved to help combat fraud. Through proper and timely education as well as deploying tools and resources together, banks and customers can launch a new era of fraud protection.
–              What paradigm shift is necessary to begin a new era of fraud protection?
–              How can banks and customers better partner to deter criminals and minimize exposure to fraud?
–              How is technology influencing the collaborative approach to fraud prevention efforts?

4/25/24, 9:00-10:00
Fintechs made waves with their digital-first approach, changing the tide of the traditional banking industry.  Not only were fintechs solving customer issues at a much faster pace, but they were also gaining momentum by attracting substantial investment and creating opportunities for new business models. Although customers were enjoying the reduced friction and lower costs that fintechs offered for lending and payments, these new entrants were riding the wave of established banks and their existing infrastructures. As the market evolves and the demand grows for expanded services, a new wave of collaboration is on the horizon between fintechs and banks, creating a win-win scenario for customers.  Fintechs achieve greater scale and broader market access through banks, and banks gain an innovative edge from fintechs. To best serve their mutual customers, collaboration will mean robust outreach, high-touch support, better client experience and significant improvement to scalability to maximize benefits for all.
–              What does collaboration look like in an ideal world?
–              How will customers’ experiences be enhanced?
–              How can a joint force open a smarter and faster payment window for the benefit of client?

706-Treasury in a Box
4/26/24, 3:45-4:45
Corporate treasurers have faced a hectic 2023; cash flow forecasting, supply chain disruption, geopolitical unrest, heightened risk management and an increasingly volatile currency market to name a few of the challenges. 2024 and beyond are being shaped by the challenges of today, but will rely on technology of the future to handle and respond to their specific needs while managing their treasury operations and investments. There are many Banking, Capital Markets, Transaction Services, Research and FinTech applications available to a treasurer today and understanding how they fit together or could fit together is incredibly important. Technology advancements in the custom workflow and interoperability space have advanced greatly over the past decade but require specialized development teams leveraging the latest in Web and Desktop container technology to achieve efficient results. The platform upgrades the user’s experience by offering workflow enhancing tiles and widgets in a customizable dashboard as part of a suite of systems are one way in which practitioners are navigating these challenges. Providing market participants with the ability to create and operate multi-asset institutional-grade electronic trading solutions across the entire workflow by reducing the noise of many systems and platforms is the goal of many corporate treasury departments today.
Furthermore, no-code & low code platform transforms investment, trading and operations workflow through managed and supported integration by bridging electronic trading for institutions with FDC3 context sharing. This added interoperability means that the context from one application (e.g. a treasury workstation) can be linked to other applications, for example, Analytics, Research, and News, which streamlines workflows, enhances usability and provides avenues for more powerful integration.
Today’s technology allows clients to streamline processes supporting workflow across multiple asset classes including Cash, FX, Payments and more. Cash managers and treasurers can bring efficiency and reduce risks through automation, visibility leading to a streamlined end-to-end workflow. For example, a cash manager can report and execute across bank deposits and other short-term multi-asset investments, consume data and analytics, as well as integrate to other systems within their bespoke workflow tool (TMS, ERP, Accounting) through a single interface, with the ability to share context, eliminating the need to copy/paste/rekey, reducing risk and adding efficiency.
