Treasury Management for International NGOs

Treasury Management for International NGOs:

Jun 19 2019 - 9:30am - Jun 19 2019 - 4:30pm

Location: Bonn , Germany

Language: English


In the volatile economic and funding environment of the last few years, many international NGOs have been focusing on enhancing and improving their treasury management practices.

At this event, we will explore:

  • How international NGOs are managing their cashflow and liquidity requirements, especially in the light of increasing pre-financing requirements within the sector, and changing donor requirements
  • How international NGOs are dealing with the regulatory requirements in global banking and global cash transfers, and how they are handling sanctions, anti-terrorism requirements and other transaction risks in global banking
  • Practices which have developed with respect to foreign exchange management, how well they are working and how foreign exchange risks are being managed and controlled

Sessions will include:

  • Treasury management for INGOs:  actively managing your cash
  • Cashflow management and managing liquidity risks
  • Foreign exchange management
  • Banking for international NGOs

There will also be a range of breakout sessions:

  • Choosing and implementing a treasury management system
  • The key elements of an effective treasury function
  • Donor and funding compliance: managing the financial risks associated with funding contracts, grants and agreements
  • Choosing and managing banking relationships (including overseas)
  • Hedging foreign exchange risks

Participants will be able to choose two breakout sessions to attend.
