gtnews Launches European Forum for Senior-Level Finance Professionals

London - 14 January 2010

June event in London to focus on financing, liquidity, risk management

The Global Corporate Treasurers Forum Europe will gather the most senior treasury and finance professionals for a June event in London to debate treasury and finance issues that affect multinationals, gtnews announced today.

With attendance restricted to corporate treasurers, chief financial officers, finance directors, controllers and assistant treasurers, GCTF Europe is designed to promote confidential, strategic discussion among the delegates as they consider business challenges best solved by others in the finance practice.

The programme is developed by a steering committee of treasurers and finance directors, working with gtnews staff. This corporate-driven event builds upon the success of the parallel AFP Global Corporate Treasurers Forum, run by the Association for Financial Professionals, which is now in its sixth year.

"Everyone will agree that we live in interesting times. The business landscape is changing at a record pace and the treasury department is expected to keep up," said Michael Cannon, Head of Payments and Cash Management Europe, HSBC, which is the exclusive sponsor for the event. "As key issues such as securing funding, managing liquidity and mitigating counterparty risk dominate the treasury agenda in Europe, HSBC is delighted to work with gtnews to bring together firsthand knowledge and expertise to enable European businesses to come through these interesting times in even better shape than before."

This two-day London event will take place June 23-25 at the Grosvenor House hotel on Park Lane.
