The role of the corporate treasurer has been dramatically evolving since the financial crisis. There is renewed recognition of the importance of traditional treasury activities, while at the same time, treasurers are being asked to play a more strategic role within the business. With this in mind, Zanders and AFP's Corporate Treasurers Council have partnered on a new whitepaper that explores how to unlock the value of treasury and turn treasury insight into business impact.
Unlocking Treasury Value: From Treasury Insight to Business Impact features practical information, strategic guidance, and valuable insight from three different perspectives.
- The whitepaper introduces Treasury Value Added (TVA), a methodology that aligns with the overall corporate objective of shareholder value creation, and describes how treasury can become a strategic business partner.
- Next, the whitepaper looks at treasury metrics, KPIs, scorecards and dashboards, which provide insight into the current best practices of treasury performance and control and highlight areas that need further development.
- The last section provides strategic guidance for implementing a ‘treasury value framework’ with the objective of becoming a best-in-class treasury organization that has a real business impact.
According to the "2014 AFP Strategic Role of Treasury Survey", 83 percent of corporate treasurers play a greater strategic role compared to five years ago, and that trend is expected to continue. Those companies that embrace this transition and position themselves to take advantage of this improved analytical capability will have an opportunity to make better strategic decisions.
