Each year, Treasury Strategies assesses the state of the treasury profession and key issues on the horizon. We supplement our rich experiences from corporate treasury consulting with a robust survey of treasury priorities, in which over 400 organizations participated this year.
When we consider what our clients and survey participants are saying, we are reminded of the environment during the early years of this century. We have consistently rising rates for the first time in a decade. We have a tax holiday — last seen in 2004. We might even begin to experience some inflation! Hence our theme for 2018, “Back to the Future”.
Once again, Bank Service Fee Benchmarks was the top corporate treasury benchmarking need. With new technology now available to help corporate treasurers put in place world class bank fee management programs, we expect to see this need fulfilled. These bank fee analysis solutions such as NDepth empower financial officers to manage and benchmark their bank service fees, compensating balances, earnings credit rates and balance assessment fees.
