CHICAGO, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Simple economics show that when investment uncertainty is high, investment often decreases. In McGladrey's Unleashing hidden value with treasury management, this was proven when a significant amount of cash remained on corporate balance sheets at the end of 2011 following the Great Recession. Companies could not rely on front-end growth, and sought a way to maintain working capital. However, as the economy improves, businesses are looking to increase corporate spending and many require enhancements in working capital management.

Treasury management is the creation and governance of procedures to manage financial position and financial risk successfully. Like larger companies, many mid-market businesses often have inefficient processes to reduce working capital, but may not initially identify treasury management as an opportunity. However, effective treasury management fills several needs, including reducing working capital burdens and addressing cash management by adding value to cash on hand.

The desired goal of treasury management is to simultaneously manage three discrete pillars, rather than maintaining each in a silo. Those pillars are:

  • Working capital management
  • Cash flow forecasting
  • Liquidity management

As firms transition from managing cash to once again generating cash from normal business operations, treasury management is a strategic approach to improve financial efficiency. An effective strategy looks at the full treasury position holistically, leveraging technology to mitigate risks, refine operational processes and unlock potential revenue sources. Read McGladrey's Unleashing hidden value with treasury management to learn more about how to implement treasury management within your organization, how to leverage technology and how to avoid potential risks.
