On this episode of the Treasury Career Corner podcast, I’m joined by Toby Shore, Senior Director, Group Treasury, Risk and Insurance at Emirates Global Aluminium PJSC [EGA].
Toby’s primary role is to oversee and manage the liquidity profile, risk management strategies, and capital structure at EGA related to cash management’s treasury operations, counterparty credit risk management, financial risk management, insurance, global tax, and risk and business continuity management.
He is responsible for the development and articulation of EGA’s enterprise wide risk management philosophy (including business continuity and crisis management), the implementation of an integrated risk management framework and platform. He has over-arching management responsibility to manage and report on the financial, operational and strategic risks of the company.
