The Assistant Treasurers’ Group of Thirty meets next month to examine and discuss the impact of the new administration on the global economy and the corporate balance sheet.
With the Trump administration focused on tax reform, several meeting sessions will center on the potential implications – some of which are more obvious than others. Meeting sponsor Credit Suisse will talk about likely shifts in trade, economic and monetary policies, and members will review the preparatory changes they’ve have made in recent months.
When it comes to the liability side of the balance sheet, members will go over their current working capital models. Should they issue floating or fixed debt, and how should they prepare for repatriation? The pre-meeting survey revealed that more than two thirds of the AT30 has done some initial preparation. The group will discuss how it plans to advise senior management to get ready for these changes.
Finally, the group will address the question, “What is the best, most efficient Treasury structure?” Several members will share insight into their own organizational structures and the tradeoffs considered in their development. The group will also look at peer benchmarking data collected from the pre-meeting survey that looks at total FTEs and the tradeoffs made to org charts when resources are limited.
