Zanders has completed its 60th IT2 treasury implementation project and, to mark the occasion, we reflect on the future and growth of the treasury world, with the following trends for corporate treasuries for 2014:

  1. Automation and standardization drive changes in treasury
  2. Towards more business integration
  3. Pressure on compliance due to stricter regulations
  4. Economic growth enables business opportunities
  5. Moving from silo towards financial holistic risk management 
  6. Financing is changing due to bank disintermediation

In terms of our TMS-related work, the first four trends are of particular importance. Automation leads, in practice, to integration of the TMS with other systems within the company (for example accounting systems).

The second trend on business integration results in projects on working capital and cash flow forecasting in which the TMS is involved.

The third trend on compliance and regulation has led to work on regulations such as EMIR and FBAR, as well as the integration of the TMS with trade repository systems.

The fourth trend results in setting up new treasuries after a company creates a spin off or merging treasuries after a take-over or merger. Next to this we see relocation of treasury, which also has implications for the TMS. 

Zanders combines its treasury transformation approach with its expertise around treasury management systems such as IT2. Zanders started providing IT2 services in 2006. In our implementations we focus on project management and the layout of treasury processes, including the set-up of the system.
