In recent years, treasurers within the financial sector have navigated an increasingly complex landscape, marked by unprecedented challenges such as the global pandemic, heightened regulatory demands and emerging trends like rising interest rates. As part of our ongoing commitment to empower a thriving credit union system, Central 1 introduced the Treasury Analyst Day in 2022.
Why Treasury Analyst Day?
A robust Treasury team is critical for financial institutions as they play a crucial role to drive profitability in those businesses.
Central 1 created Treasury Analyst Day to provide credit unions with access to the necessary expertise and resources to meet the evolving challenges of the financial industry. Its purpose is to equip the treasury talent of tomorrow with the knowledge and skills needed and to foster a community of treasurers within the Canadian credit union system.
Since the first session in March 2022, we’ve welcomed over 500 attendees to our Treasury Analyst Day. Many of these participants are new to the treasury function, while others were simply looking for a refresher.
Their feedback on the sessions speaks volumes:
“I now have a greater understanding of derivatives and I am getting a better idea of where to get economic information from Central 1.”
“This presentation gives important clarity for my team on how Treasury can add value to our organization.”
Spotlight on 2023 session
Following a successful launch in 2022 with a focus on treasury operational functions, Treasury Analyst Days have returned in 2023 and are focused on spotlighting treasury’s strategic functions, while covering market and regulatory, growth and profitability and product pricing strategies.
At the latest Treasury Analyst Day on September 21, Central 1 experts and a panel of treasury credit union leaders came together to share valuable insights and best practices. They focused on the topic of effective business management through Asset Liability Management (ALM), a strategic process that guides organizations in navigating the complex financial landscape. ALM helps align assets and liabilities to enhance risk management and optimize returns, ultimately contributing to improved profitability.
Join us for Treasury Analyst Day #4 on December 7
The next and last session of Treasury Analyst Day 2023 is scheduled for December 7. Entitled “Creating synergies between treasury and risk,” this session will cover:
- The relationship between treasury and risk
- Risk, growth and profitability
- Navigating regulatory changes and regulatory impacts on business
- Managing new and unfamiliar risks
We look forward to continuing our journey of equipping credit unions with the knowledge and tools needed to thrive in this ever-evolving financial landscape.
