Why Corporate Treasurers May Consider Bitcoin


Does an unprecedented economic situation call for an unprecedented response?  One of corporate treasury’s primary responsibilities is cash and liquidity management.  With a range of assets to manage, a treasury must consider short and long-term liquidity needs, changes in foreign exchange rates, changes in interest rates, and the macro environment amongst other factors.  Traditionally corporate treasuries have managed cash conservatively, but the evolving economic climate may call for the addition of bitcoin to the balance sheet.  Join us to explore the viability of adding bitcoin to your strategy.
