- Payment Systems and Issues -- creating a sound payments system environment, liquidity and treasury management, structured IT operations in the payments environment, operations procedures and controls, SWIFT, clearing houses.
- Operations/Back Office Management -- a healthy business is a business that is managed according to sound principles be it in respect managing its cash inflows and outflows or its operations and processes to ensure optimum efficiency.
- Securities Settlement Systems -- in banking and investment operations cash is only half of the equation. The other critical component is the investment instruments into which the cash is placed – the bonds, stocks, options and other vehicles that make up the financial system. How these are processed, cleared and settled is a vital component and ‘other side’ of the payment process.
