“As a rapidly growing company with large financial exposures, Fortescue Metals Group Ltd identified the need for its Treasury Operations to keep pace with the rest of the organisation in terms of capturing, managing and reporting the groups liquidity and financial risks.

We selected FMB Solutions to assist us in developing and implementing a STP blueprint for processing transactions efficiently and securely. Shane Roberts, the Director worked closely with us to identify, select and implement the processes and technology solution, which comprises a treasury management system integrated with SWIFT confirmations and payments and a separate live market data system.

“The process of replacing a treasury system requires objectivity, an extensive knowledge of treasury processes and risk management and dedication. FMB Solutions provided these skills and more in one experienced package which we could not have otherwise achieved whilst running a complicated business at the same time. From a detailed business plan, all deliverables have been met on time and with a minimum of disruption. The use of an external consultant has brought us wider perspective and ensured that best practice is adopted in all areas. I therefore would have no hesitation in recommending FMB Solutions to any prospective corporate about to go through this process

Nigel Moffatt – Treasurer - The Perth Mint 2008 - 2010

“FMB Solution’s logical methodology and practical experience gave us the tools and confidence we needed to manage a complex implementation of new treasury risk management technology globally. Their process driven project management skills and experience in implementing treasury technology were certainly major contributors to the success of our project

“Understanding your physical commodity exposures and managing market risk effectively as a corporate consumer or a producer is a very complex and difficult task, which can be further compounded if the right processes, structures and technologies are not in place. With the Australian sugar industry deregulating we knew we had to implement better processes and technology if we were going to capitalise on the opportunities a deregulated commodity market can present. We chose FMB Solutions to help us understand our current processes, design a future state environment and identify & evaluate appropriate software vendors to help us achieve our vision. and effectively lead us through this process. We were not disappointed”

Kim Morison – General Manager - CSR Sugar 2008

"Systems are great at optimising work flow but they do not generate it or explain it to participating and impacted stakeholders within an organisation. In Treasury and Market Risk Management functions, effective, planned and transparent work flow is of paramount importance, especially when you are creating it when none previously existed. FMB Solutions provided quality advice and output when we need to plan, define and document our treasury 'front to back' work flow processes ahead of a large and complex treasury system implementation"
