Treasury trends in Asia: ‘The road ahead for treasurers’

Regulation across Asia, and beyond, is having a profound macro-level effect on corporate treasury activities. In parallel, the ongoing drive for efficiency is triggering some significant changes in the location and deployment of treasury and shared service centres. Mark Troutman, Regional Head of Sales of Global Payments and Cash Management for Asia-Pacific, and Yvonne Yiu, Acting Head of Global Payments and Cash Management for Asia-Pacific, at HSBC, discuss some of the most significant trends in the Asia-Pacific region from the perspective of corporate treasurers who are responding to them.

As both renminbi and foreign exchange deregulation progress in China, new opportunities for treasury management emerge, with both the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) recently announcing important changes.

Typically, this is because treasurers and finance directors believe there are still many technological and infrastructure hurdles to make the process worthwhile. But as Lewis Sun, Head of Sales China, Global Payments and Cash Management at HSBC explains, this assumption is no longer correct and implementing such a strategy now can reap substantive dividends in terms of both local and global working capital efficiency.
