The Americas Cash Cycle Seminar is certainly one of my favourite events of the year. Not only as an opportunity to catch up with industry friends, but as an opportunity to meet new people, hear about the latest trends and developments with currency technology and of course enjoy the Miami vibe!
If you have not yet registered for The Americas Cash Cycle Seminar (November 14th to 17th in Miami Florida USA), regular registration fees are still in effect until September 30th. You can register here.
This years schedule promises to deliver presentations focusing on new ideas in cash handling and Armored transportation and compelling discussions on such topics as transforming the supply chain and realigning the roles of cash management.
Here are three key presentations you will not want to miss:
Banking Services In Retail, How To Live Up To The Challenge! – by Laura Hernandez, 7Eleven Mexico
Presentation Synopsis: With the objective of increasing client flows in the >2000 retail points, 7-Eleven México is the first convenience store chain nationally to celebrate a merchant contract in order to operate as a correspondent bank branch. While meeting the desired objectives, another (unsuspected) challenge emerged with the sharp increase in cash volumes, which provoked a new focus on cash management. Make sure to attend and listen to the solutions already implemented and strategies being evaluated for the future efficiencies.
Panel Discussion: Everybody Wins: Successfully Realigning Cash Management Roles – Moderated by: Jim Poteet, Executive Vice President – Sales & Marketing, Fireking
Panelists: David Koval, Senior Vice President, Bank of America. Deirdre Spehar, Vice President, Financial Institutions, Garda. Robert Lynch, SVP, National Financial Business Development, Loomis. David Negrete, Director, Commercial Cash Services Integrated Services for the Americas, MUFG Union Bank.
Our panel of distinguished industry experts will share their insights, lessons learned, and advice on what it takes to go from an outsourcing project to creating a mutually beneficial cash management partnership. Relinquishing non-core cash management tasks to a trusted partner can help banks endeavor to generate higher returns, add value for their clients, and increase risk management controls. The banking executives on the panel will share recommendations for successfully integrating and realigning roles along the cash life cycle. Armored/cash-management executives will weigh in with their recommendations for avoiding pitfalls from their experiences in offering cash management solutions to financial institutions.
How Risk is Rapidly Shifting International Finance – David J. Schwartz, President and CEO Florida International Bankers Association (FIBA)
Presentation synopsis: Increased regulation, stricter due diligence requirements and compliance costs have led financial institutions to reconsider their involvement in correspondent banking and the product lines that it represents. The panelists will discuss the phenomenon that has become to be known as De-Risking, its causes and effects, and the challenges faced by banks in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
