Challenges

Imagine an organization that is comprised of 60 internal companies: each operating internationally with their own banks, accounts, finances, funding, and responsibilities to boot. For ASYAD Group, this is their reality. ASYAD Group is an international company conducting business on 3 major fronts: ownership of the shipping vessels, ship management, and ship chartering.

With 60 ships in their fleet, the company operates with the mindset of one ship, one vessel, one company, each with separate financing needs. As you can imagine, the treasury needs of a company with this level of complexity is enormous. Interacting with around 35 banks with close to 150 open accounts across currencies, visibility and centralization of data can make or break the efficiency of their treasury team. Muhsin Alrustom, Group CFO of ASYAD Group, had a vision to transform the department, and enrich the work of treasury employees.
