Topic:  Bank Account Structure and Strategies Including Relationship Management and KYC

Details:  Join NWAFP for a discussion on how Corporate Treasuries can help their organizations set up their bank account structures in an optimal way to operate strategically. When faced with decentralized account structures and multiple banking platforms, managing liquidity and collecting data may be a complex ordeal. What are best practices in managing banking partners, especially when it’s more than one bank? Private companies may face numerous pain points as it pertains to the KYC process.
