Intellect Treasury Convergence Bangladesh

21 May, 2014 | Venue: Chameli House, 17 Topkhana Road GPO Box 2883, Dhaka 1000, Bangladesh

Polaris is proud to jointly host its Treasury Convergence with Bangladesh Foreign Dealers Association (BAFEDA). Bangladesh Foreign Exchange Dealers Association (BAFEDA) was formed in a bankers' meeting held on August 12, 1993 in the Board Room of Rupali Bank Ltd. to help the development of an orderly inter-bank foreign exchange market in Bangladesh. It's major activities include framing of rules governing the conduct of inter-bank foreign exchange business among banks vis-a-vis public and liaison with Bangladesh Bank for reforms and development of forex market.

The earlier days of Treasury concentrated on automation, integration and APIs for easy upstream and downstream connect, today is the era of information on the go, informed decision making, and a fundamental shift from managing risk to leveraging risk for competitive business advantage. iRTM (Intellect Treasury 3.0) specifically addresses the aforementioned issues. It is the worthy successor of Intellect Treasury 2.0 which was an integrated solution that aided banks by centralizing operations, providing operational efficiency through complete automation and seamless integration of treasury functions. Apart from managing risks, iRTM helps to leverage risk thereby giving the banks the upper edge to compete globally.

At the event we have chairman of BAFEDA, Thomson Reuters, Rupali Bank, Sonali Bank & Bangladesh Bank leaders speaking on the treasury market trends. Mr. Venkatesh Srinivasan, CEO, Intellect Treasury & Capital Markets, Polaris Financial Technology will elucidate on how you can power your way to reaping benefits of financial technology. The event will also present a great networking opportunity. This specially designed event will also feature speakers on key banking solutions along with a value exposition.
