Treasury Advisory

Strategic Advice on the Management of Financial Risks

Deloitte's treasury advisory team provides expert advice on the management of financial risks and other treasury challenges to listed and private companies.

The team works alongside Deloitte's financial advisory professionals, providing both standalone treasury advisory services and transaction-related treasury advice. The team consists of experienced corporate treasurers who combine sound technical skills with an in-depth understanding of the drivers of corporate value and treasury success factors.

Companies run large amounts of financial risks, ranging from foreign exchange and interest rate risk to liquidity risk. Treasurers are instrumental in identifying and managing these risks, and creating shareholder value by lowering treasury related costs. Effective treasury management such as cash management can release funds and be catalyst to support growth of a business.

As companies grow, financial risks evolve. Transformational changes such as M&A transactions can give rise to their own treasury risks that must be managed, but also result in the need to update existing treasury management policies and processes.

Treasury consulting

The team works directly with companies to advise on treasury matters, develop strategies for financial risk management, liquidity and cash management, and implement treasury operations and infrastructure.

They have worked for companies of all sizes on a wide range of deals and projects, covering most industries and a range of countries across Europe, the USA, India, China, Africa, the Middle East and Brazil.

Transaction-related treasury advice

Identifying and managing financial risks appropriately in a financial advisory transaction is often critical to a successful outcome.

The team can assist:

  • Buyers, for example advising on target currency exposures, potential impact on valuation, and possible methods to protect against currency exposure during transactions, particularly between exchange and completion
  • Post-Acquisition, either to establish or improve treasury operations, or to integrate two existing treasury teams
  • Companies that are refinancing debt
  • Businesses that are experiencing restructuring challenges, for example through improving cash management, and selecting and implementing appropriate interest rate hedges

The team also supports Capital Markets work, primarily in the context of the working capital statement and assessing group funding.
