This was also a major issue for this company until it introduced a trail-blazing solution which Matthew Clarke, Group Treasurer at Intertek is willing to share with you. China accounts for around 20% of Intertek’s revenue and an even greater percentage of its operating profit and cash flow so the need to repatriate the cash back to the UK was a major challenge. This solution takes maximum advantage of the changing regulatory environment to deliver a robust, yet flexible, sweeping structure to maximize cut-off times for same-day value. Intertek applied for a quota for its onshore entities to lend to related offshore entities and was one of the first ten companies to get approval in Shanghai, and the very first in Guangzhou.

The retail and small business lending space is rapidly changing and turning into a key battleground for financial service providers. By leveraging new technologies and data analytics, financial institutions can remain competitive and more effectively compete against the new breed of marketplace lenders.


Today non-bank lenders are driving innovation through online loan origination, mobile apps, and predictive analytics. By putting these tools to work and combining them with sophisticated decision technology with smarter consumer apps, leading financial institutions are able to speed origination and provide consumers with a better lending experience while improving margins and reducing portfolio risk.


Learning Objectives:
  • The trends and technology driving change in retail and small business lending
  • What financial institutions can do to compete and win
  • How to leverage aggregated data feeds to improve customer service and deliver a more streamlined lending experience

Honeywell had built up cash significantly since the beginning of the financial crisis in 2008, to over $8.4bn today. Counterparty risk has also been a growing concern as banks were hit by junk portfolios, new regulations and ensuing credit downgrades. Honeywell therefore needed to completely revamp its counterparty risk management process. Honeywell decided to harness the power of technology to address the situation. Séverine Le Blévennec, Director EMEA Treasury explains how the company leveraged a range of technology components to provide 100% daily cash visibility on their 2,241 bank accounts and all cash investment transactions around the globe.
