What have you learned from 2022 that will guide you into 2023?
There has been plenty to learn from 2022 in the world around us. Whether that be looking at recent events in the world of crypto, our merry-go-round government or, perhaps most pertinently to us, the LDI crisis that shook financial markets (something that maturity matched FTFs totally avoided!). However, when reflecting inwards, I think it is always important to remember that persistence and consistency is key. When you are very far from where you want to be, even when you are working on something that you truly believe in, your goals can seem unachievable, but ultimately we reached them and beyond in 2022. For me, 2023 will see a focus on daily incremental improvements to the way we do things, rather than getting caught up in the ultimate goals; it’s time to trust the process!.
Can you share a memory from 2022 that left you feeling inspired?
Our team’s consistent drive to deliver the best in cash management to treasurers across the globe is always inspiring for me. This was best encompassed at our company’s annual offsite where, with the obvious distractions of glorious sunshine, swimming pools and merry team mates, our product and operational team were gathered round laptops to ensure a new issuer could be onboarded in record time. Other than that – seeing our recent tech hire, Ross, break dance in a rural Italian restaurant on the same trip was also fairly inspiring…
What are your most important objectives for 2023?
The business went from strength to strength in 2022, with 2.6x growth in AUM and an 80% increase in onboarded clients – which we are very proud of. But it is important for us to remember that this is just the beginning. We plan to bring TreasurySpring to more people, in more sectors and across more geographies – the sky really is the limit.
What is going to rock your working world in 2023?
The prospect of seeing our company and our team, growing in terms of people, products and scale is very exciting. As we see further changes to the regulatory landscape, it seems the need for viable alternatives to manage cash will only grow and we feel we sit as the most obvious choice for treasurers to minimise risk whilst maximising return.
