The Tech20 Treasurers’ Peer Group talks Trump tax reform, repatriation, payments and blockchain at its May 4 meeting, sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
With US policy changes sure to impact FX, rates and the financial markets, treasurers are preparing for a number of different scenarios and wondering about the unanticipated consequences that lie ahead. How might a Dodd-Frank rewrite or MMF rollback impact MNCs? How will global trading, capital allocation and flow-of-funds models change in the event of a tax break? Members will share insight into their planning processes and debate the probability of certain restructurings.
In a more light-hearted session, meeting host PayPal will give a guided tour showcasing the future of the payments industry and innovation in the payments space. Afterward, an expert from the company will address the group’s questions regarding operations, security and KYC.
Speaking of technology, the group will also hear from a member on how his company is experimenting with blockchain. The company is moving into a pilot phase of its project, using blockchain for issuance, negotiation and confirmation of letters of credit on a global basis. As blockchain continues to gain ground, it will be helpful for the group to hear from a fellow member on how it can be used to serve corporate purposes.
