Keeping up with treasury innovations and the latest technology is a job within itself. This presentation will provide an overview of and perspectives on how emerging payment technologies (e.g. faster payments, application programming interfaces (APIs), blockchain) will not only transform, but disrupt the treasury functions of the future. These disruptors will change how treasury operations delivers on mandates to optimize financial assets and liabilities, drive cash flow improvements, process cash transactions, and manage financial risk for their university. Treasury teams who are prepared to take advantage of these technologies will realize significant improvements in student and staff experiences, and recognize the associated automation and operational efficiencies that result from innovation.
