A lack of guidelines or inadequate organizational requirements in the treasury area contribute significantly to increased risks or losses. The timely identification, limitation and professional management of operational and financial risk potential is therefore of particular importance. Recommendations from associations, new legal regulations and requirements from supervisory authorities increasingly require the establishment of an early warning system for risk management in the company. The seminar will focus on the implementation of these proposals in practice and their operational impact on corporate treasury management.
