Wall Street Systems (Wallstreet), a global provider of treasury, trading and settlement solutions, has sponsored the European Association of Corporate Treasurers (EACT) for 2011/12.

Wallstreet will have the opportunity to hold meetings with the heads of country associations, and discuss their views on key trends in the industry.
Richard Raeburn, chairman of EACT, said: “With technology now a key enabler behind treasury transformation, and managing financial risk, this partnership offers EACT the opportunity to work with a market innovator and help our members understand how technology continues to evolve.”
