Tech20 to Debate Capital Allocation, Acquisition and Spin-Off Financing, Treasury Transformation and Fintech

 
The Tech20 Treasurers’ Peer Group will meet in Sausalito, California, in early November to tackle a full agenda that includes a panel on acquisition and spin-off financing with members and bankers from BNP Paribas. 
 
Here are some other key sessions:
 
Risk Management – FX Hedging and Industry Standard Risk Management Policy: The session will kick off with a member seeking input on what constitutes an industry standard risk management policy and how he can bring his program up to date. FX programs are challenged with new (but most say better) rules for hedge accounting, and trends in cost cutting, digitalization and the USD cycle. 
 
Capital Allocation – A Continuing Conundrum: In the 2017 tax and political environment, how do members stand on the capital allocation conundrum? How much should go to buybacks, dividends, M&A, etc.? How do you decide? And who influences the decision? A member will discuss the capital allocation issue while another will address the calculation of the company hurdle rate and the factors influencing it.
 
Growing Up and Transforming Treasury – Member Case: We’ll hear how one of the tech members describes the journey so far to scale treasury and align its mission and service delivery with the company’s evolving growth strategy and business model. What can this member’s experience teach other companies to do and to avoid?
 
Another session will tackle tax and treasury synergies and collaboration, and an external speaker will present a blockchain use case.
