Whether we address financial management in general or treasury management specific areas, activities (including cash, liquidity and forex transactions), controls & reporting, and supporting systems (processes and IT) are almost always assessed with a view on financial risk management. Often asset management and elements specific to dedicated functions represent also areas of explicit attention.
These tend to be assessed on a generic level relative to a company’s overall business plan and financial policy but also relative to specific (chosen) business units.
The ensuing recommendations (linked to best practices) often lead to or encompass the development and/or implementation of solid financial risk policy and control environments. We have set up optimal liquidity, foreign exchange (exposure) and risk management practices, procedures and processes in Europe, Africa and Asia.
