CTMfile Update 11th Aug 2019

For corporate treasury departments world-wide

Dear [fullname,fallback=],

August is typically a 'slow-news' month, last week was no exception, but there was one major story from Bloomberg as they explained their new approach to FX hedging that optimises the balance of currency earnings-at-risk vs. cash-flow-at-risk to minimise overall FX impact on companies. The other development was the introduction of several new features in payment systems: progress on the use of blockchain in payments; the use of digital signatures; and new real-time system coming from the Fed in the USA. Plus a new partnership on FX hedging from Kantox and Silicon Valley Bank.

Don't miss PwC's Bas Rebel WEBchat on "The workforce of the future".

Plus Top Tips on a new approach to FX hedging and the best News from the Web this week; and much, much more.
