Foreign exchange and shifts in politics are the most important areas of treasury risk for treasurers, according to original research by GTNews.

The research, carried out late last year, found FX to be the most important area of treasury risk, with 61.5% of treasurers noting it as a concern. Country/political changes and liquidity came a joint second, with 53.8% citing them as important.
