The banking crisis of 2008, which created financial havoc around the world, caused considerable savings and wealth to evaporate, strained the equity levels of global organizations to unprecedented minimum levels and resulted in money markets, as well as other normally liquid and transparent capital markets, to temporarily freeze up or suspend trading activities. As a result of the substantial losses caused by this tidal wave of financial ruin that occurred in equity stock markets, currency, commodity and derivative markets on a global basis, treasury, and cash management functions are now regarded as vital for the stability, security and profitability of all organizations.
