Dow Corning’s treasury team used to be heavily constrained by legacy processes and systems; that is, until they decided to tackle a complete overhaul. Noting that their existing processes required a great deal of time spent on non-value-added activities, the team took a systematic, lean approach to re-building their currency risk management program from the data up.

The result: a best-of-breed, straight through process which freed up their human capital to act as strategic consultants inside Dow Corning. And a lot of lessons learned.

Join this Treasury & Risk webcast to learn how Dow Corning was able to:

  • Minimize manual data entry, saving 600 hours/year of staff time and reducing risk of error
  • Improve visibility into currency exposures companywide
  • Quantify performance of treasury functions, both at Dow Corning and at the company's counterparties
  • Save nearly $5 million annually through process optimizations
