Cost Management & Liquidity Risk: Emerging Market and The European Paradigm

Aims of the seminar:

The aim of this seminar is to present a structured process for improving cost management and handling liquidity risk. The financial system has experienced a multitude of new developments and major structural changes over the last decades. Widespread deregulation, liberalization and globalization, accompanied by technological development and consolidation, have fundamentally transformed the global financial landscape.  In such a demanding and unstable environment, cost management is a crucial issue for the survival and development of a firm. The objective of this seminar is to provide participants with practical knowledge and guidance on applying efficient cost management techniques as well as facing liquidity risk and enhancing company performance.  This is a practical, hands-on seminar that will also give you the opportunity to discuss actual paradigms stemming from an emerging “transformed”, European market thus allowing you to learn how the E.U. deals with such issues.
