What we do and how we do it
Service 1: Risk Review and Policy Creation
Treasury risks come in many shapes and sizes. Rapidly rising interest rates, however, have caused other risks to emerge on a scale not seen since the GFC of 2008 – counterparty credit risk, liquidity (and investment) risk, FX risk and funding risk to name a few.
Corium Treasury has the experience and network to help you understand the drivers of these risks, to assess how they can be managed and to convert the insight into a policy, with process and technology recommendations (e.g., digital platforms that enable access to: liquidity enhancing invoice and supply chain finance; cost reducing supplier payment techniques; and products that optimise risk-adjusted investment returns).
Service 2: ‘360’ Treasury Review and Road Map
Whatever the reason, Corium can help by providing a full review of the function, identifying any gaps with respect to the requirements of the current business environment and better practice. Prioritised recommendations with quantified benefits can be converted into a plan or ‘road map’ providing clarity and reassurance about the way ahead.
Service 3: Accelerated RFP
From time to time, treasurers like to issue a ‘request for proposal’ (RFP), whether it be to select a new TMS, a cash management provider, a credit provider (e.g., supply chain finance) or to find counterparties for MM deposits.
Corium has partnered with fintech ‘Treasury Delta’ to provide a ‘consultant-technology’ solution, that makes this process many times quicker than it has been historically using emails and spreadsheets to record and compare responses. The Treasury Delta platform has 5 main advantages: efficiency, customisation, established vendor connections, transparency and governance. Ultimately, this is all reflected in price – and an attractive return on investment for the client.
Service 4: Carve Outs
Corium can help you assess all aspects of treasury operational requirements for the parent or separating entity, to ensure that both are effective from the date of separation and that risks are identified and contained.
Service 5: Training (inc Presenting)
As well as helping with such technical requirements, Corium can also assist with presentational performance. From time to time, treasurers are taken out of their comfort zone and are required to make critical presentations e.g., to the Board, at conferences or to debt investors. Corium has teamed up with researchers from the Royal College of Music and Imperial College to harness techniques such as Virtual Reality and sequential simulation to improve high-pressure presentational performance.
Service 6: Interim Services
Whatever your interim need, Corium Treasury can probably help you fill the gap and leave your organisation with lasting improvements.
