History

In fact, it was in 1981 when the Corporate Forex Club was  born.

At that time, most of its founders were active in the  foreign exchange markets for their respective corporations. We all had the standard foreign exchange screens, and all of us were in constant contact with our many bank contacts (traders and economists) to be able to decipher and  predict the ups and downs of the market.

The problem for a  corporate foreign exchange specialist, however, was in dealing with those very  contacts. The bank traders had a 5 to 10-minute view of the market while the  bank economists were looking in their crystal balls for a 1 to 3-year forecast. The corporate needed a different perspective. Most were prohibited from any  form of speculation per se, but had to define corporate policy in the three, six  and nine-month period.

 

When several of us got together at an external  conference, we shared these problems and decided to create our own forum where  we could share our views among ourselves without banks representatives or consultants. The monthly meeting followed by a luncheon, the proverbial currency  forecast and the much cherished yearly excursion became our standard operating  procedure over the years

Most of the original founders  continued to be active members, but most had moved up the ranks into either Treasurer or Finance Director positions. Hence, it was decided several years  ago to change the group’s name to encompass a broader range of finance activities hence, the Corporate Treasurers Club and then the Association of Corporate Treasurers in Swiss Romande today(ACTSR).
