REVENUE & TREASURY MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE

 Theme: Revenue and Treasury Management as a Competitive Advantage

Date: 31st July to 2nd August 2019

Venue: Travellers Beach Hotel, Mombasa

A.  OVERVIEW

Liquidity management is the most critical decision for many organizations since it determines not only the profit to be made but also the magnitude and quality of investments to be undertaken by organizations. Organizations have to adequately project their working capital needs in order to be in a position to meet their obligations as and when they fall due.

If not well planned and monitored, the working capital demands of an organization can damage the company’s reputation and in severe cases lead to liquidation. Management of treasuries and cash in organizations involves among other things management of revenues, setting up appropriate controls around treasuries, risk management and cash management decisions. These decisions are dynamic and require constant monitoring and review in the face of enhanced competition.

This inaugural conference on Revenue & Treasury Management has been organized to focus on the following areas:

  • Framework for Revenue Management: Re-looking Demand

The level of demand is the single most determinant of the magnitude of revenues of a business. The demand management decisions are therefore critical for the prosperity of a business. Discussion on this subject will highlight the strategies companies can employ to ensure there is sufficient demand for its products.

  • Revenue Management Techniques

Companies apply several techniques to manage their revenues such as discounts, matching prices to that of competitors, customer reward and loyalty programs, mark-downs which are permanent reduction in prices, unlimited use pricing where the quantity is unrestricted over a period of time among others. All the above have varying implications on the revenues generated by a business. Discussion will review the implication of the above.

  • Tools for Analysis of Revenue Management

It gives particular attention to the role of capacity analysis and the connection of revenue management to the theory of constraints. While revenue management originated in the service industries, it is now practiced across a broad spectrum of business and not-for-profit organizations.

  • Emerging Issues in Revenue Management

This discussion will cover the current matters relating to the management of treasuries which among other things include cryptocurrencies, changing technology, enhanced automation, etc.

  • Review of the Treasury Systems in Place

The treasurer information needs are not normally available through a company’s standard accounting systems and the enterprise resources planning (ERP) systems. Even though an ERP system is designed to aggregate all of the information used in a modern corporation, the treasurer also requires information from a variety of external sources regarding investments, foreign exchange positions, interest rates, and so forth.

Consequently, treasury systems are useful to integrate information from various sources giving useful information to the treasury staff for use in performing their tasks. The discussion will cover the treasurer’s technological needs for efficient functioning of the treasury departments.

  • Cash Forecasting Techniques and Automation

Cash forecasting is absolutely crucial to the operation of every organization. A small shortfall has serious ramifications on the solvency reputation of a business. On the other hand, if organizations keep a lot of cash, they lose out on the opportunity to earn returns from potential investments. A quality cash forecast ideally allows the treasurer to determine how much cash is available for short, medium, and long-term investments, each having progressively higher returns.

The discussion will cover how to construct a cash forecast and automate the forecasting the information contained within it, and how to create a feedback loop for gradually increasing the accuracy of the forecast.

  • Treasury Controls: Best Practices

Due to the big amounts often involved in many treasury functions creates a significant exposure to organizations which greatly affect their day to day operations. It is therefore necessary to have a broad set of controls that help to ensure that transactions are appropriate and organizations realize full value from their treasuries. The discussion will focus on the best global practices relating to controls for the treasury departments.

  • Risk Management Strategies for Treasury and Cash Management

The management of cash and liquidity is one of the most strategic decisions for managers due to the impact it can have on the business continuity. Several risks are inherent in the management of treasuries and cash, the purpose of the discussion is to analyze the various risks faced by treasury managers and how best to mitigate against the risks.

  • Managing the Treasury Function: Best Practices

The treasury department is responsible for a company’s liquidity. The treasurer must monitor current and projected cash flows and the funding needs, and use this information to correctly invest excess funds. The department must also safeguard existing assets, which calls for the prudent investment of funds, while guarding against excessive losses on interest rates and foreign exchange positions.

The discussion explores the above responsibilities of the treasury department, as well as the best practices relating to the management of treasuries.

  • Cash Concentration Decisions

Larger companies with many subsidiaries, especially those with operations in multiple countries, maintain a significant number of bank accounts which may create inefficiencies in relation to cash management from tracking of the many bank accounts and balances. This creates a challenge in making centralized payments, repayment of debts or even investing. This can be solved by cash concentration where the accounts are pooled.  This discussion will evaluate the various cash concentration strategies, the mechanics of pooling, and supporting policies, procedures, and controls.
