FTEs will continue to dominate corporate treasury departments

According to nearly 400 treasury professionals surveyed in the 2019 AFP Risk Survey - The Evolving Treasury Ecosystem, supported by Marsh & McLennan, found that treasury and finance professionals believe the top three risks over the next three years are: strategic, cyber and financial. 

Some of the key findings of the latest risk survey were:

  1. Strategic risks and cybersecurity risks continue to be of significant concern and will continue to dominate concerns for several years
  2. Cash management and forecasting will be the focus of treasury operations over the next three years
  3. The vast majority of personnel within treasury functions are and will continue to be full-time employees:

  4. Treasury departments have yet to embrace non-traditional vendors
  5. Organizations are not fully confident that they are prepared to use non-traditional vendors
  6. Views on banks/entrenched vendors versus non-traditional vendors:

CTMfile take: The two surprising findings of this report are 1) the vast majority of employees will continue to be FTEs, and 2) how many corporate treasury departments are still wary of non-traditional vendors.
