While hedge effectiveness continues to represent a major challenge, risk, in particular accurate risk assessment (29%), was also top of mind for Treasurers. 69% of respondents reported taking steps to adjust their risk management strategy including running scenarios/sensitivity analysis and calculating Value-at-Risk (VaR). These results were similar to last year’s survey.
With all of the regulatory changes on the horizon, the majority (88%) of corporate treasuries felt that they would need to change the way they are doing business. 51% of respondents anticipated that the impact would be minimal, with minor changes needed, 30% thought that the impact would be moderate and notable changes would be needed, and 6% expected to make significant changes. Only 12% felt that they were well-prepared for regulations that lie ahead.
