2019 global corporate treasury survey

More than 200 companies from around the globe, across all industries, and revenue groups, participated in this biennial survey.

Key insights from the survey include:

  • Liquidity risk management and being a stewardship of financial risk management remain the most important mandates for a chief financial offer.
  • Inadequate treasury systems infrastructure grew from 30% to 47% over the past two years.
  • Visibility of data is now the most challenging area for treasury, up from the second highest challenge in 2017.
  • The pace of technology adoption by respondents is directly linked to their awareness and implementation of new technologies in order to stay ahead in their industry.
  • The extent to which technology can be used to achieve scalability, reduce cost, and gain a competitive advantage is not yet fully appreciated. Brexit concerns and the adoption of various international financial reporting standards requirements are cited as the main regulatory challenges facing treasurers.

Commodity risk management services

Commodities marketing and trading have entered a new era of sophistication and scale. Changing global economic conditions are impacting local markets. International trading houses—whether in energy, metals or soft commodities—are extending their reach and scope. Logistical constraints, disputes, and cyberattacks are disrupting supply chains. All these factors have created exciting opportunities for the commodities industry, but they also come with new risks which need to be monitored and managed. If you’re someone who relies on commodities—like a producer, marketer, miner, refiner, or even a utility or consumer business—the ability to visualize and utilize data amid volatility and fierce competition is a key component for success.

Our commodity marketing, trading, and risk management practice provide a range of consultative services. We help our clients develop and maintain sustainable governance, compliance, and risk management programs across their people, process, and technology. We serve a wide range of companies participating in physical and/or financial markets with commodity, operational, and regulatory risk exposure.
