Richard Bottomley Hon FCT

Richard spent almost 40 years as an employee of the Midland Bank / HSBC Group, where he held several senior leadership roles, such as the European Head of Payments and Cash Management Sales. He is recognised by the industry as being a leading practitioner and subject matter expert in the field of international cash management, as evidenced both by his professional qualifications and by the many requests for him to speak at conferences and training events related to the industry.

Richard's status within the Corporate Treasury world was recognised in 2012 when, upon his retirement from the HSBC Group, he was made an Honorary Fellow of the ACT. Since his retirement, Richard has offered both consultancy and training to both corporate and banking employees, in order to pass on his wealth of knowledge.

Andy Ryden

Andy’s banking career spans four decades, almost all of which has been dedicated to transactional banking and he has held senior leadership roles at both HSBC and Barclays. At HSBC, Andy was the European Head of FI Sales and then Head of UK Sales in the commercial banking space.

At Barclays Corporate in 2008, he was tasked with ‘professionalising’ the UK cash management sales teams and rolling out a specialist national deposit sales team. They were responsible for the conquest of new sources of liquidity for the bank whilst aligning behaviours of the generalist sales force to the bank's strategy. In parallel to this, he co-ordinated the formation of the international sales teams and in 2012 moved to the US to launch the Barclays Corporate in North America.

Since retiring from banking in 2014, Andy has focused on offering consultancy and training to the next generation of cash management professionals. In addition to working with the ACT, Andy has also worked with organisations such as Deutsche, HSBC, JP Morgan, Soc Gen, and others as he enjoys passing on his decades of knowledge to those who wish to learn. 

The Advanced Cash Management course gave me good insight into how the global treasuries work. During the course, I learned about the challenges and building blocks of cash management. I also learned about the best-in-class solutions in a multi-currency environment and the rationale behind them. The tutors made the whole subject very fascinating!
