8 Steps to Build an Accurate Cash Forecast

In a recent Reval survey, treasurers listed improving cash forecasting as their top strategic initiative. This is unsurprising given treasurers are increasingly being asked to support senior management in strategic decision making. They need to provide information on global cash positions, work out funding options and mobilise trapped cash for acquisitions or growth into new markets.

Furthermore, cash positions have been impacted by high volatility in currency and commodity markets and a changing banking environment, forcing treasurers to take a closer look at short- and long-term liquidity.

But putting together an accurate cash forecast is complex, time-consuming and very manual. Really? I don´t think so. I know treasurers who do their global cash forecast in minutes.
