Members of the NeuGroup’s European Treasurers’ Peer Group (EUROTPG) set the agenda last week for its upcoming autumn meeting which will be held at sponsor Bank Mendes Gans’ offices in Amsterdam. BMG, jointly with member company United Parcel Service (UPS), will share the case study of the UPS cross-border pooling set-up and meeting participants will have a chance to drill into the details to thoroughly understand the ins and outs of this liquidity management tool and the way BMG delivers it.
REGS, REGS, REGS: An area of keen interest and timeliness is the status and progress of members’ compliance with SEPA; ditto for derivatives regs in Europe (EMIR) and the US (Dodd-Frank). On the latter topic, they are particularly concerned with reporting and reconciliation mandates, and the interplay of the European and US rules.
FIRST-CLASS TREASURY TO INTEGRATE WITH ANOTHER: Whether on the giving or receiving end of M&A activity, treasury plays an important role in the integration of two entities, particularly if they are both of significant global heft. A member from one such company will share various tips and lessons learned for smoother integrations of the treasury “machinery.”
The meeting will also have time allocated for members to share their current priority projects and an open forum for timely topics that did not get full sessions dedicated to them. The meeting will run for a full day on November 21 (with a group dinner the night before). BMG’s representatives will be present in the morning while the afternoon is reserved for members-only peer-to-peer exchange.
