Innovation Sessions

2020 SPONSOR INNOVATION BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Sponsor Innovation Breakout Sessions showcase new products and best practices for efficient cash handling, forecasting, and more. Delegates have dedicated time throughout the program to continue their conversations with top suppliers in our Sponsor Exhibition where breaks and receptions will be held for continued delegate education.

Unlike a typical tradeshow environment, the intimate atmosphere of the MEA Cash Cycle Seminar, with its focus on developing connections with one another, encourages meaningful engagement between clients and suppliers to allow strong business relationships to flourish.

Breakout 2: Data is Key

How software solutions can increase efficiency, security and make cash competitive.

Using data analytics to inform strategic decision making

For some time now, the cash management cycle has been generating ever increasing amounts of data. The key question facing businesses today is not how to generate more data, but how to extract and use that data. This session will provide a practical insight, using the latest technologies, into the types of data that can be extracted and, most importantly, how that data can be turned into useful information to improve performance, support decision making and influence and inform strategy.

Using technology to support collaboration between central banks and the commercial sector

The most effective management of end-to-end cash cycle management is achieved when central banks and the commercial sector work together. This session will use case studies where solutions have need designed and deployed using common and shared toolsets, to the benefit of both the central bank and the commercial banking sector. We will explore what these benefits are, and where closer collaboration can achieve full end-to-end visibility for all parties throughout the cash cycle.

Convergence of Cash Technology

Central Banks Monetizing Gold: Why?

We need an alternative global currency to FX. FX payments transfers an obligation, but does not retire a foreign external debt obligation for a country. We are still exposed to FX risks and cannot guarantee a FX deal to mitigate our risks as per our preference as Central Banks. But we maintain FX reserves as it is the best solution for now.

A solution entails for countries: FX portfolio diversification with an asset that has zero credit risk, highly liquid globally accepted and has stood the test of time. The way forward is to have physical gold holding reserves and to monetize it in times of emergencies. It works faster and more efficient than FX reserves.

We learn why through a case study.
