Curt Zuber, Group Treasurer, Westpac Group, 21 September 2012

CFO BOARDROOM

Curt Zuber addressed a private boardroom event for 18 Chief Financial Officers where he discussed - “The changing world of funding, capital and liquidity - are we match ready?” This CFO Boardroom lunch was proudly sponsored by Clifford Chance.

Since the GFC, accessing the capital markets have been expensive and volatile. Banks in particular are challenged for optimal funding from the customer deposits, domestic and overseas bond markets, and the hybrid markets.

Curt joined Westpac Banking Corporation in 1995 and was appointed as the Bank’s Group Treasurer in October 2004. In this role, he is responsible for Westpac’s treasury operations including securitisation, group liquidity, global wholesale funding, capital management and all on balance sheet risk management.

As Group Treasurer, Curt oversees teams located in Sydney, Auckland, Singapore and New York. He is responsible for managing the underlying risks associated with the Bank’s asset and liability portfolios, primarily interest rate risk and foreign exchange risk.

Curt is also responsible for ensuring the efficient execution of the Bank's wholesale funding, within the parameters of a prudent liquidity management framework. This role includes maintaining and enhancing the Bank’s wholesale funding franchise through strong relationships with investors in markets across the globe.
