    Topic: Do You Have the Right Banks?  Capabilities, Service, and Price

    Speaker:  James G. Brunnquell, CTP

    Topic Description:  No two relationships between banks and their corporate clients are the same. As the world moves towards real time treasury, the strength of each relationship depends on many factors, including product mix, price, customer service, the ease of doing business, and the technological capabilities of the bank.

    We will examine different corporate/bank relationships, based on the latest Phoenix-Hecht studies, and discuss proactive steps that corporates can take to ensure that they have the best bank relationships possible.
