A Safe Port in a Storm
presented by Kerry Pope, Fidelity Investments
After several years of growing economic growth, the red sky at morning is causing investors to take warning that the long anticipated recession may be finally washing up on the global shores. Negative rates and inverted yield curves are signals of the global slowdown that has been exasperated by trade disputes, Brexit, demographics and political instability.
Although the Federal Reserve and most other central banks are attempting to quell fears of uncertainty by lowering rates and adding liquidity to the system, their collective efforts to date have had little impact on bolstering sentiment and may even be contributing to the heightened anxiety. As a result, investors have been finding protection from increased volatility in money market funds and other near cash equivalents.
During this presentation Kerry will provide an overview of the dramatic shift in market conditions and investors reactions to the heightened uncertainty.
Hedging Against Disruption via Real-Time Treasury: A Strategy for 2020 and Beyond
presented by Cody Mamone, PNC Bank
Disruption is more pronounced than ever before, driven by technology-enabled business models that are shaping our economy as we know it into what some call the “third industrial revolution”. Legacy enterprises must remain both relevant and tactical in response, especially in the evolution of Treasury’s role in being a strategic value-creator for a firm’s financial function.
The U.S. payments space and transactional banking infrastructure is in a Renaissance period at the moment, with investment in digital innovation across the financial sector continuing to grow year after year. There’s one goal: to drive transformation across the treasury management industry and solve complex problems between cash and data.
With limited resources and IT capacity, scaling capabilities as a financial function is a never-ending path of evolution. How can Treasury departments maximize financial & operational performance while capitalizing on technology & innovation? The goal of this one-hour interactive discussion is to enable problem-solving as it relates to transacting business across the supply chain of tomorrow.
