2016 has been a year of major political surprises with the Brexit vote and The US presidential election. These events have had significant impact on financial markets and generated volatility.
In 2017, Corporate Treasurers will have political risk high on their agenda with the British prime minister’s plan to leave the EU and upcoming elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany. While we are experienced at managing uncertainty in markets, this year may bring once-in-a-Treasurer’s-lifetime changes as major political decisions lead to major structural changes.
The EACT acts as a forum for collaboration on pan-European Treasury issues, and we will further develop our initiatives on regulatory matters to broadly thought leadership.
