Venkatachalam, Director of Finance & CFO, Leela Hotels, Mike Ferrer, Regional General Manager, ING Asia Pacific who discussed whether monetary reserves of banks and other financial institutions are being put to effective use.

Indian banks and companies have between them, a considerable amount of monetary reserves accumulated owing to the rising levels of personal wealth and increased profitability of corporate entities.

This is despite the fact that new mutual fund offerings like floaters, dividend yield funds or even real estate funds are flooding the market.

The CFO Brainstorm on ‘Treasury Management in India: Scope for Aggression’ attempted to understand whether CFOs and treasury heads have been truly successful in making the most of the funds accumulated by the financial institutions.

Speaking at the forum, Kaushik Chatterjee, VP – Finance, Tata Steel said “In the challenging global scenario, the timing for raising funds for a company is as important a challenge for a CFO as managing the surplus funds and protecting the capital.” Seshgiri Rao, Director Finance- Jindal Iron & Steel Co added that the role of a CFO has changed from just minimizing risk to maximizing opportunities.

Summing up the entire scenario, Ajay Mahajan, CFO – YES BANK said, “The accent has been increasingly on risk management and awareness on the same has improved over the years among several company boards. In an increasingly growing economy, with global influences Indian companies need to improve their understanding about risk management in addition to being aware of the international financial markets that they would be exposed to.”
