Treasury & Financial Markets

KPMG's Treasury & Financial Markets team can assist organisations to develop and execute cost effective financial risk management strategies.

KPMG can help you develop and execute cost effective financial risk management strategies.

Pro-active and sound financial risk management is paramount to build a sustainable business. While managing financial risk can be very complex companies failing to take a holistic financial risk management approach might find themselves in a position of compromised cash flows, insufficient liquidity and risk access to capital markets.

When implementing risk management decisions, organisations may need to execute relatively complex investment, borrowing and hedging transactions. Poor execution can result in the payment of large margins, which could have been avoided. Having executed risk management transactions, organisations need to then account and report on these transactions which can be challenging for some organisations.
