About The Carfang Group
Treasury | Payments | Liquidity | Banking.
The Carfang Group specializes in consulting, writing, speaking, thought leadership and advocacy in the area of treasury management, payments, liquidity, fintech and banking. We know these areas intimately and bring unparalleled insights to our clients.
Technology is redefining these businesses, regulation is increasingly determining outcomes, geopolitical issues like Brexit and the phaseout of LIBOR tilt the playing field and central banks are wild cards with their inflated balance sheets. We work with our clients to see through these complexities, develop strategic insights and identify breakthrough opportunities in this area.
Our recent white paper, "Megatrends in Treasury, Money and Banking" provides a glimpse into our future.
