  2. 2. The International Challenge Operations are global Banks are numerous and widespread Resources are limited Do more with less… • Maintain foreign bank accounts • Actively manage group liquidity • Keep costs low • Manage risk 2
  3. 3. Options Do nothing • Continue to spend time, effort and cost maintaining each account directly using each foreign bank’s proprietary electronic banking platform Move to a “Global Universal Bank” • No such thing as a truly “Global Bank” – meaning a bank that has a service set full enough to meet all customer demands in all countries • More likely, these so called “Global Banks” have a full service set in a few countries, and a more superficial capability in several others Leverage a focused multi-bank solution… U.S. Bank SinglePoint is a registered trademark of U.S. Bancorp. 3
  4. 4. The Multi-Bank Solution Does your bank offer SWIFT to facilitate the exchange of information and instructions with your overseas banks? Does your bank manage the connection to your existing banks, and able to offer referrals for new international banking relationships? Does your bank provide a gateway for international information reporting and a method to execute payments remotely on your overseas accounts? 4
  5. 5. Liquidity Management Manage your company’s international liquidity using a Multi-bank Platform for International Information Reporting and International Request for Transfer • Access timely and detailed balance information providing a “real time” view of your USD and foreign bank balances • Optimize cash balances by maximizing investments and minimizing debt • Actively control the flow of funds between your global accounts from one access point5
