Managing Sanctions Risks in Payments Efficiently Through Kyriba’s Fraud & Compliance Module

International sanctions pose significant risks on the day-to-day corporate treasury processes: regulators such as the US’ OFAC impose financial sanctions to an ever-increasing number of entities and impose hefty fines on companies that fail to comply. 2019 OFAC enforcement actions reached an all-time high with a staggering amount of $1.3bn in fines against 26 companies. Whether sanctions compliance is mandatory for any corporation, the implementation of the required control frameworks can be highly challenging. Learn from Metlife how Kyriba’s Fraud & Compliance module can help you manage your sanctions risk.

Driving Value through Diversity: Women in Treasury**

Promoting a gender-diverse workforce isn’t just a matter of fairness, it’s about business results. According to research from McKinsey & Co., companies in the top quartile for gender or ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians. Yet, increasing the number of female senior executives has been slower than expected. This session explores the big impact women are making on the treasury profession, and how their male counterparts can act as both advocates and strategic collaborators to achieve better financial outcomes.
