Hyundai Capital America (HCA – an Adam Smith Awards Winner, Top Treasury Team 2015) is a top ten auto lender. While initially HCA relied on low-cost asset backed securities (ABS) and attractive bank lending facilities to fund the lion’s share of its funding needs, asset growth propelled HCA’s balance sheet from $5bn in 2009 to close to $20bn by the end of 2012. Eric Senay and Frank Boroch share the key elements of HCA Treasury’s work including diversification of funding channels to support business expansion, deepening of liquidity sources to soundly manage the inherent volatility in the business, de-risking of the balance sheet through sophisticated liability management, reduction of interest expenses through improved financial community management and optimisation of funding instruments, and enhancement of flexibility for the business to finance incremental asset classes.

Manage Risk: Building an Effective Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan    

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 | 1:00 PM Central
Up to 1.2 CTP/CCM credits by the Association for Financial Professionals pending approval, sponsored by GTNews

If you ask treasurers what is their top priority, you’ll find risk management near the top of the list, but not necessarily a disaster recovery plan. As leaders of the organization, it’s important for treasury to consider the possibility of a loss of personnel, loss of connectivity, loss of services or loss of location. While the CIO and CFO are aware of the dangers of a security breach, such as phishing, whaling or vishing, there are many more potential reasons a company can experience a loss.

This webinar will provide critical insights at the CEO, CFO, CIO level and is relevant to the organization, especially treasury. Following this online session, finance leaders and treasury teams will walk away understanding the importance of business continuity and continuation planning (BCCP) to align business priorities, and be fully prepared.

Highlights include:
  • What are the top priorities for your business to continue
  • Why treasury should be at the table with the CEO, CFO, and CIO to identify business continuity objectives
  • Focus on planning for four conditions instead of infinite scenarios
  • Who is responsible for security, and what are best practices for information security
