“Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time.” Whatever you might think of Microsoft’s Co-founder, or the frustrations you might encounter with your Windows operating system on a daily basis, Bill Gates’ statement about technology could not be closer to the truth.

European Cash Management 2013

Publication date: Sep 2013

2013 has proven to be yet another tough year, despite muted optimism and hopeful predictions in January. Forecasts from the European Commission (EC) in early May showed annual Eurozone GDP shrinking by 0.4% in 2013, following a contraction of 0.6% in 2012. Interest rates remain at rock bottom, with Mario Draghi, Head of the European Central Bank (ECB), refusing to rule out negative rates. Government debt levels remain worryingly high in many countries, and sovereign and bank downgrades continue apace.

Corporate Treasury in the Middle East Best Practice Handbook

Corporate Treasury in the Middle East

Publication date: Mar 2013

The Middle East is a complex and increasingly innovative region.

European Cash Management 2012

Publication date: Aug 2012

“The risks surrounding the economic outlook for the euro area continue to be on the downside,” says the August 2012 bulletin from The European Central Bank (ECB). “They relate, in particular, to the tensions in several euro area financial markets and their potential spill-over to the euro area real economy. Downside risks also relate to possible renewed increases in energy prices over the medium term.” As if this weren’t enough to contend with, the ECB has also cut its 2013 growth forecast for the single currency area from 1% to 0.6%.

Eurozone Crisis: A Treasurer’s Survival Guide cover

A complimentary special report on the Eurozone crisis

Publication date: Dec 2011

In 2008, the outlook was certainly bleak. In 2011, things seem to be going from bad to worse. Governments were at least able to step in and rescue their country’s banks in the wake of the Lehman collapse. Today, it is both Eurozone banks and governments that need support and there is a distinct lack of co-ordinated effort in doing so.

So where does this leave the treasurer? In this unsponsored special supplement, we tackle the core challenges that the Eurozone crisis presents: will Eurozone leaders make an unprecedented leap towards fiscal union or will the single currency begin to fragment? Moreover, what safety measures should treasurers pursue to avoid the brunt of any fallout?
