IACT Virtual Treasury Summit 2020
November 18, 2020
Congratulations to the Irish Association of Corporate Treasurers (IACT) on organising a very informative and successful Virtual Treasury Summit 2020. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IACT moved to a virtual conference platform for the first time, and the result was a great success. Some of the nuggets from the conference included:
- The significance of the Georgia Senate run-off election results on 5th January 2021 for the US and global economic outlook
- With 50% of retails sales gone online, the impact of the digital economy on reduced usage of cash and flexible working arrangements
- Audience participation highlighted the main treasury challenges for 2021 as treasury technology automation and cash forecasting
- The audience also suggested that payment management and regulatory/compliance were the most time consuming treasury tasks.
We look forward to meeting in person at the 2021 IACT Treasury Conference.
