Mr. Gadot’s presentation offers insights on how banks can assist their corporate clients in managing their global liquidity through effective cash management.
Fundtech, a market leader in global transaction banking solutions, today announced that Gil Gadot, President of Fundtech Asia-Pacific will be a speaker at the annual Asian Banker Summit, being held in Bangkok, Thailand today. Mr. Gadot’s presentation will focus on the challenges that corporates face in managing liquidity, and will offer solutions on how banks can assist their clients.
The panel discussion is entitled “Meeting the liquidity management requirements of our clients in booming yet uncertain economic environment”, and will be held today 26th April. On the panel with Mr. Gadot will be executives from Kasikorn Bank, J.P. Morgan, and SWIFT.
Mr. Gadot’s presentation will explain the causes of corporate liquidity management problems. Cash-starved corporations often suffer because their liquidity is trapped in complex supply chains and because they are unable to accurately forecast their liquidity. On the other hand, cash-rich firms are not optimizing their excess cash investment returns because they are not able to maximize their investment duration, also due to the inability to accurately forecast future cash-flow needs.
The panel discussion will also cover how banks can assist their corporate clients in addressing liquidity issues. Mr. Gadot will explain how banks can help corporations free up trapped cash in their accounts receivables and payables process and increase the velocity of their cash through electronification. He will also discuss how a regional, multi-country approach to cash management will improve results.
