Effective Finance & Treasury in Africa: Unlocking Africa’s potential
As Africa strives to modernise and reform, the continent continues to offer enormous business opportunities. Nevertheless, in an environment of permanent market, regulatory and geopolitical change, optimising liquidity and risk management is key to successfully leveraging these opportunities.
While we move towards an economy of prediction in which data is the raw material of business, digitalisation is changing the way companies manage treasury in Africa. Lack of visibility, speed and control will soon be a thing of the past. Initiatives such as Vision 2020 in Nigeria are fast driving digitalisation in areas that include legal and finance. The adoption of real time payments and faster reconciliation in several markets are helping treasuries improve working capital. Mobile solutions have changed the payments landscape in Kenya specially and increasingly across the region. Blockchain technology could help drive efficiency too.
