In this series of microcasts, Andrew Blincoe and Yang Xu, Senior Vice President, Global Treasurer & Corporate Development at The Kraft Heinz Company share their perspectives on the essential ingredients for successfully managing treasury digitalisation, liquidity, and leverage: prudence, planning, proactivity and people.
For many corporate treasurers, the experience of the past 16 months has shown that access to data can be just as vital as access to liquidity. More than ever, treasuries need operational efficiency and accurate real-time data to improve visibility on operations and cashflows, and empower decision-making, not least around liquidity management & leverage, and to be able to respond quickly and effectively to a fast-changing financial and operating landscape. But many find the challenges preventing these projects from progressing too difficult to overcome.
At the same time, many companies that have taken on significant amounts of new leverage to help cushion the pandemic’s blow will need to review and optimise their capital structure for the post-pandemic economy.
In this Bitesize Boxset series of microcasts, Andrew Blincoe and Yang Xu, Senior Vice President, Global Treasurer & Corporate Development at The Kraft Heinz Company – in conversation with John Nicholas, Senior Advisor at Treasury Today – share key insights into managing treasury digitalisation, liquidity & leverage in a post-pandemic world.
