Holistic treasury perspectives enabling effective business partnering with value focus also at strategic levels

Meet our speaker Serene Tan, Head of Subsidiary Treasury and Banking at Equinor ASA. At the event Serene will talk about how holistic treasury perspectives can enable effective business partnering with value focus also at strategic levels.

 

Tell us a little about yourself
I am passionate about treasury and the ability to impact and enable our business.

Born and raised in Singapore, then moved to US for a year, eventually settled in the countryside of Norway. Love brought me to Norway and my interesting job in Equinor made it possible for me to stay permanently. I have been in Norway for soon 15 years.

As a speaker at this year’s event, you will talk about Holistic treasury perspectives – can you tell us a little more about that?
Treasury is multi-faceted; it is a niche yet broad subject. Treasury is generally related to the process of managing an organization’s liquidity, money market instruments, banking, cash concentration and related to funds flow. During the various crises, treasury has become more core and important. It has also moved from a more reactive to proactive role.

In the session, I will share Equinor’s treasury organization and how it is integrated with our tax department and synergies we have seen. I will also discuss how we interface with the various business units and work closely with them to ensure focus on the overarching principles of maximizing value, optimize access and visibility to cash.

What is the biggest lesson you take with you from your work with that?
Don’t let what’s been done limit the possibilities. Every problem presents an opportunity.

What key insights do you want the audience to bring from your presentation at the event?
Ways to be more proactive in treasury seeking to maximize value and minimize risks for the organization.

And what are you most looking forward to at this year’s event?
Networking and meeting new people; sharing experiences.
