This webinar is only available to premium members and members of the ACTS.

The Asian Treasurer Webinars continue with Jarno Timmerman, Head of Treasury SEAP at AkzoNobel, who will be discussing their in-house bank and payment factory project as well as FX trading on behalf in restricted economies.

With centralisation on the agenda for treasury departments across Asia Pacific, the creation of an in-house bank structure is regarded by many as the end point on this journey. Establishing such a solution in the diverse regulatory landscape of Asia Pacific however, is not an easy task, and one that few have yet to accomplish.

Dutch multinational AkzoNobel however, are a company that has built such a structure and in this webinar Jarno Timmerman, Head of Treasury SEAP (South East Asia Pacific) at AkzoNobel explains how they did it and how they overcame the many challenges that they faced. In addition, Jarno also outlines how best practice has been implemented along with the solution that has allowed the region to align with the group’s corporate strategy and also obtain a number of benefits including reduced costs and greater control and visibility over its cash.

The innovative treasury team hasn’t stopped there however, and Jarno will also give insight into how AkzoNobel has built an FX trading on behalf of structure in some of the regions most restricted economies. A solution that has allowed them to manage better their FX exposures.

For all those treasurers dreaming big, or who just want to learn more, this webinar is one not to miss.

This webinar was held on Wednesday 27th May 2015.
