Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Treasury Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Treasury talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Treasury professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Treasury talent and are able to provide clients with Treasury professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Treasury professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Treasury consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Treasury consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Treasury talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Treasury talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Treasury consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Treasury

Treasury in finance is the area of a large company (e.g. General Electric) that operates its borrowing and lending operations, usually in compliance with government regulations. Its activities may include:

  • investing corporate funds to achieve desired levels of interest, market risk and return;
  • selling certain types of government securities such as US Treasury bonds;
  • borrowing funds to meet temporary needs for cash or to take advantage of unusual opportunities; and
  • arranging for transactions between different countries’ central banks or treasuries so that payments can be made without the need for currency exchange.

Why are Treasuries Separated?

Recent changes to Treasury regulations have increased the need for treasury operations to be placed in a separate, independent subsidiary. The purpose of separating treasury operations from other corporate operations is to minimize the conflicts of interest between funding decisions and investment decisions. For example, many companies borrow short-term funds to cover their day-to-day expenses while they borrow long-term money to invest in projects that are expected to generate corporate profits years into the future. If these borrowing activities are handled by the same corporate officers who decide which projects should receive corporate funding, there is a strong possibility that funds will be diverted from long-term investments in order to make needed short-term payments. The separation of treasury operations from other corporate operations can be accomplished by locating treasury in a subsidiary called the treasury department, the Finance Corporation, or some similar name. The subsidiary may be legally separate from the parent company or it may report to the chief financial officer of the larger corporation.

Other Roles of the Treasury

Treasury activities are also involved with bond issuance. A typical example is an industrial company that has decided to undertake a bond issuance to raise funds for expansion through investment in new equipment. The decision about issuing bonds is separate from deciding on how to spend the funds once they are raised.

The debt department of a large company is most often responsible for issuing bonds and arranging for their sale to investors through one or more broker dealers (Wall Street banks). The company may also finance its own debt needs by converting borrowed funds to stock, or issuing common stock.

A Treasury Department of a corporation’s global subsidiary may be responsible for arranging payments to its parent company for goods or services provided to third parties. Such transactions are widely known as “cross-border payments” and are sometimes regarded as a form of “trade financing”. For example, General Motors receives payments from its subsidiary in Argentina for the provision of auto parts to the subsidiary’s customers.

Situating Treasuries

Treasury departments of most large organizations are often located in countries other than the country that has issued the fund raising instruments that they are responsible for servicing. This is because it is sometimes more convenient for international transactions, e.g., where the U.S. company has a subsidiary in Canada and the company wishes to have a Canadian bank handle its international transactions. Treasury departments use technology such as SWIFT and Fedwire in order to manage their networks for cross-border payments, foreign exchanges, and the issuing of bonds.

Regardless of the size of your business, Fintalent’s Corporate Finance experts can help you carry out a proper assessment of your business and determine the way to set up your treasury department. While separation of the roles by citing the treasury in different locations may be possible for large corporations, it may not be practicable for smaller businesses and would therfore require the ingenuity of experts to set up the treasury with adequate safeguards to ensure funds are prudently managed and only for the purpose they were acquired.
