ACT Conference 2018 — Key Tech Takeaways
This IDC Market Note contains some key tech takeaways from the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) Annual Conference 2018 in Liverpool, U.K., on May 15 and 16, 2018. The 1,100 corporate treasurers from companies like Shell, Centrica, and Vodafone, and from corporate banks like BNP Paribas, HSBC, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, were given a useful snapshot of the payment, lending, trade, and cash trends and technologies that are shaping the corporate banking marketplace. The re-emergence of virtual bank accounts as a hot topic, alongside blockchain and APIs under PSD2, was interesting to see, as was the rising interest in real-time payments and how they align with liquidity risk management, intraday pricing, and so on.
