Cash Flow / Liquidity Management: It Takes a Village

The old adage that ‘Cash is King’ is very much the core mantra of many businesses in today’s market.  From payroll, to A/P, to Treasury, to FP&A and everywhere in between, liquidity and cash flows involve a company’s entire finance team.  However, there is often a disconnect between these departments, which can cause difficulty in forecasting cash or truly understanding liquidity and its importance.  The roundtable will focus on the importance of cash flow and liquidity management and how to fully integrate all of the stakeholders into creating a team that remains in touch and closely aligned on liquidity.  This allows a company to maximize liquidity and become nimble / adaptable to any cash flow issues or changes. Learn some best practices and how FP&A uses liquidity and cash flows to help project strategic initiatives for management and overall improve the value proposition for the company at large.
