As a rule, medium- and large-sized holdings whose regional business units are serviced by ‘local’ banks, experience problems with the centralized management of cash flows generated by the holdings, as it is impossible for the accounts and budgets department in the corporate centre to promptly obtain all the information necessary to evaluate the liquidity of each company, that make up the holdings. This leads to a significant reduction in the efficiency of the holding’s use of its current assets.
