Growing international trade between emerging markets and between developed and emerging markets, paired with the still ongoing global economic crisis has put its finger on an important issue; the physical supply chain must be supported by an equally important and well functioning financial supply chain. The financial supply chain works like oil in the engine, making things run more smoothly without malfunctions.

Will treasury operations ever be centralized?

 A majority of treasury managers and professionals wish for more centralisation of a number of activities. For example payments, collections, liquidity structures and organisation set-ups. But, it doesn't seem to happen.

This is one of the conclusions we can draw from a survey that SEB together with GTNews has conducted every year since 2006. In the areas mentioned they state having a de-centralised set-up but have a strong wish to centralise. This is consistent and doesn't seem to change over the years.
