Ray Graber speaking at New England AFP’s 33rd Annual Sources of Education Conference, April 18-20 at the Seaport World Trade Center, 1 Seaport Ln, Boston, MA 02210
This session will present the fundamental workings of virtual currencies with an emphasis on Bitcoin and the current state of the regulatory front. We will get your thinking caps energized as to how treasury professionals and bankers might approach virtual currencies and some thoughts about what the future might hold for virtual currencies and blockchain.
Bitcoins have gotten much more traction than early detractors and pundits expected and its price has risen dramatically. With that reality, what do companies and banks need to do, if anything, to prepare for their continued existence and surprising acceptance?
No one can afford to ignore what bitcoin and the blockchain promise for the ongoing avalanche of digital innovations to come, including fighting crime and combating cyber-attacks.

Ray Graber and Compliance4All to present “The RFP Process: How do I Change My Bank? Should I Even do it?”, a webinar
The Cash Management and credit RFP process is painful. You need to think twice about entering into this endeavor. This session will outline the pitfalls, metrics, and timeline that you should expect before you even begin. Learning about and understanding the process will mitigate the pain, but it remains a long and tedious adventure. You should understand the banks' (responders) views because that is almost as important as the answers they return. It is imperative that you set the correct goals and selection criteria before producing the RFP document.

Graber presents “Cash Management: A User’s Perspective – The How’s, Why’s and Wherefores”, a webinar
Cash management seems simple enough; money comes in, money goes out. However, managing the flows and gathering the right information at the right time is complicated and tricky. Understanding the pitfalls and anticipating Murphy’s Law is both a science and an art.
Why you should attend:
Cash is King! You’ve heard that I’m sure. But managing cash can be a pain in the butt. Establishing procedures, maintaining banking relationships, and getting good, reliable information are some of the key elements of good cash management.
The larger the company, the more complex the issues and hence the solutions. No longer a pencil and paper enterprise; managing cash is the Rubik’s Cube of finance.
