Automation is creating newly found efficiencies in finance and treasury.  From Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to leveraging Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) with your financial partners, you are poised to optimize treasury management, retool existing resources and processes to help impact your firm’s bottom line.
All of this must be designed and implemented in an ever increasing risk environment where prescriptive security is mandatory.  We will offer insights on the new risks and increased instability in the financial system, and how these technologies are disrupting traditional approaches, eliminating redundancy in working capital management and recrafting strategies on human capital.
