Corporate Treasury in Practice - An Intensive one-day Overview

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.

No prior knowledge is assumed and all terminology will be fully explained.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is for staff who are new to Treasury, have recently taken on increased Treasury responsibilities, or indeed existing treasury professionals who need to re-fresh and up-date their skills. It will also appeal to bankers and relationship managers who need to understand how and why corporate treasuries work, in order to better understand their client’s perspectives and requirements.
