The world of commerce is becoming real-time, as instant payment mechanisms emerge around the world. This is having a profound impact on how businesses operate and serve customers who expect a user-friendly and seamless experience when pruchasing goods or services. Corporate treasury is at the heart of this and has a crucial role to play in ensuring that the business can function smoothly in a real-time world.
In this, the second episode of our Expert Voices podcast series, we speak to Jonas Hedman, Associate Professor, Copenhagen Business School, Carola Schmitz-Becker, Vice President Corporate Treasury at Deutsche Post DHL, and Lothar Meenen, Global Head of Corporate Cash Management Sales, GTB Cash Lending, CBNL for Cash Management, Deutsche Bank, to understand how real-time payments are impacting treasury departments. We also ask whether a truly real-time treasury ecosystem can be created using the technology that is available today and the effect this might have on cash and liquidity management.
