What Treasurers Should Know: Fintech Disruption

The shape of treasury management is changing with the rise of disruptive technologies, like blockchain, real-time payments and Big Data.

To inform corporate treasurers of the changing landscape, the banks, SAP and the European Association of Corporate Treasurers (EACT) have published the first “Journeys to Treasury” report, which they intend to issue annually.

The next five years of financial services could see significant disruption from FinTech players, the report warns. For corporate treasurers, FinTech can pose a threat to their operations. But it also offers significant opportunity.

For instance, the possibilities for real-time payments include a compliment to existing card and cash transactions, immediate payment-on-delivery regardless of the day or time of the transaction and a more affordable substitution to same-day payments.
