Winding Down Russia: Treasury Challenges

This was our third call on the situation in Russia.

Insurance within Treasury

After many years of weak markets and low insurance premiums, many companies have probably been buying more cover than they may really need. A market where premiums are rising is causing companies to re-evaluate their approach. This re-evaluation involves many complex questions around risk appetite, collaboration with other functions (Legal, HR, Logistics, Manufacturing, IT), the use of brokers, tax, and others. This gives the treasurer the opportunity to really demonstrate his or her value to the business.

Treasury & Banking in Iraq

For companies who are still doing business there, Iraq is not as difficult as might be imagined. There are a lot of issues around Iraqi Kurdistan, and transactions are often routed via the UAE. Not all international banks have a big appetite for Iraqi risk, but good
services can be obtained from UAE or Lebanese banks. Dollar availability can be variable,
but it is usually possible to remit cash out. Not for the faint hearted – but it works!

Treasury & Banking in Ethiopia

 As a war torn and famine stricken country, it is not surprising that Ethiopia is a difficult place to do business. But, with a population of over 100 million people, it is the second largest country in Africa (after Nigeria), so economic activity does take place. Items deemed essential, such as medicine and goods required for building infrastructure, can be imported, but long payment delays are not uncommon. Importers find local currency building up from their local service operations: the absence of foreign banks makes it challenging to manage this. Most have decided to set up a local treasury team, and one operates via Djibouti.
