Developing Talent for Treasury and Your Own Advancement. How do you develop treasury talent and keep employees passionate about their work? And how do you successfully move up and into the treasurer’s office yourself? What is the necessary skill set and how do you get it? Led by meeting moderator and former treasurer of Caterpillar, Ed Scott—who will describe his own career journey—members will discuss their challenges, best ideas and successes.

Pension Management Case Study. A member will share her company’s approach to pension asset management in the context of bankruptcy proceedings and life after reorganization, including strategies to de-risk pension liabilities; how pension liabilities affect company valuation; and de-risking in the prioritization hierarchy of capital structure initiatives.
Technology and Systems to Future-Proof Treasury. Beyond TMSs, what are the emerging technologies that will transform treasury and deliver on efficiency and automation mandates, as well as enable treasury to make smarter decisions using data that is increasingly available in real time? What part do blockchain, robotic process automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence (AI) play in the future of treasury? Members will weigh in with their opinions and approaches.
Tax Reform, Repatriation and What Comes Next? Members will discuss questions arising from the new US tax regime, including: What are all the implications affecting capital structure, investments, and cash management? What actions are MNCs taking in the short term and what are some longer-term changes they’re making, and why? Will there be wholesale changes on the balance sheets of corporate America?
Also on the agenda:

• Transition from LIBOR to SOFR
