Liverpool, May 2022 - For the sixth year running, UniCredit UK was amongst the main sponsors of the annual ACT Conference - the UK's largest treasury conference hosted by the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT).
This year saw a return to a live event format, with hundreds of senior treasurers and finance professionals coming together to deliver over twenty hours of content, twenty Treasury Labs, and a wealth of networking opportunities.
UniCredit's own Treasury Lab looked at the macroeconomic impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with Dan Bucsa, UniCredit's Chief CEE Economist, explaining what this means for the various CEE economies. Sergio Ravich Calafell, Global Head of Corporate Treasury Sales at UniCredit, then followed up by walking us through the implications for risk management and hedging interventions with a focus on FX and commodities solutions for corporate clients.
David Vials, Head of Corporate Coverage UK & Ireland commented " For treasurers of multinational organisations it is hugely important to be up-to-date on the current situation and the potential impact of macro events, along with relevant trends and risk implications in financial markets. Being present at the ACT Conference, the preeminent event for the UK treasurer community, gave UniCredit a great opportunity to demonstrate our expertise and the insight that comes from our footprint through a focussed treasury session analysing the current situation. Needless to say, it was fantastic to be able to do this face to face after such a long time."
