Treasury Management Erik Vermeulen

As you grow your international activities and banking relationships, it gets more difficult to see, control and optimize your company’s cash. The same applies to your financial risks: changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates and developments in international markets all have an impact on your company. We help you better manage your group treasury, using adequate tools to automate processes, and gain clear insight in your positions. This way, you gain more control and time for strategic decisions.

Credit Management Erik Vermeulen

We can help to increase the effectiveness of your credit management and collections of accounts receivable, so you no longer have to spend time in manual tasks, and focus on the relationship with your customers. We cooperate with the best in class providers of credit management tools.

Your gain: a decrease of DSO and unrecovered accounts receivable, lower working capital requirements, less usage of credit facilities and a better relationship with your clients.

Optimize Finance Erik Vermeulen

Through the years, your company has increased the number of bank relationships and finance facilities. You have a myriad of credit facilities, loans, discount facilities, export lines, guarantees, supply chain finance facilities, etc. Often, with different banks, and differing terms and conditions. It’s time to optimize this situation, establishing a finance policy with clear funding goals for the current and future needs of your group. We help you to prepare and implement this policy, advise you on the most appropriate sources of funding, and assist you in applying and negotiating the facilities. You save interest and costs, rationalize the use of collateral and get more funding.
