  • Treasury Leadership Series – Investing Wisely

Going into 2012, investing wisely has become a greater challenge to many corporate treasurers as they are faced with more questions than answers. It is even more significant now since cash reserves for many corporates, especially in Asia, have grown during the past few years and treasurers continue to seek alternative investments to meet both risk diversification and liquidity objectives.

Headwinds from economic issues plaguing developed markets and the resulting impact on global banks and sovereign risks have created a number of challenges in diversifying investments across currencies and instruments for Corporate Treasurers. They often find themselves looking for secure repositories for their cash, segmenting their cash for return optimization while maintaining a balance with counterparty risks.

In this session, Citi's Asia Pacific Liquidity and Investments team and representatives from Asset Management houses will address these key questions that will help Treasurer's navigate their company better in today's difficult market conditions.
