Efficient and Effective Treasury Management

This course will demonstrate how and why good treasury practices can be cost-effective and can improve corporate efficiency and it will put the treasury department in context with the rest of the organisation. Use this programme to “health-check” your own treasury department as we will overview all of the key functional areas, discussing ways and means to increase treasury efficiency. As treasury skills and applications become more widely recognised both inside and outside the company, it is vital to fully understand “best practice” and ensure that staff understand their own roles, responsibilities and how the corporate culture in an organisation will influence their treasury activities. In the wake of the recent developments with Dodd Frank, EMIR and the new accounting standards, this is more important than ever.
