Cash & Liquidity Management

Data management and exploitation

HSBC Thriving Treasury podcast series

In this third episode of the Thriving Treasury Podcast series, brought to you by Treasury Today and HSBC, we explore the increasing importance of new technology – data analytics in particular – for treasuries as they look for ever greater insight into customers, competitors, operations and processes.

We speak to Suraj Kalati, HSBC’s Global Head of Liquidity & Investments Product Management, who specialises in finding the right solutions for treasurers looking to turn data into actionable information to better manage working capital, liquidity and risk.

He explains how the mountains of data treasurers have normally kept in siloes – whether it be self-generated or from third parties, customers and supply chains – can now, with the help of new technology, be exploited to support good corporate decision making.

Corporate treasuries are highly unlikely to have the budget or inclination to build their own platform for warehousing and analysing data. Banks, however, can help by playing a vital role in helping them exploit data, says Kalati, pointing to areas such as benchmarking and forecasting. He also makes some interesting predictions on the impact data analytics will have on the treasurer’s role over the longer term.
