Course Overview

Treasury departments need to cover the complete financial environment: from capital structure and long terms investments to liquidity and working capital management. If Treasury can drive improvements in the Purchase-To-Pay and Order-To Cash cycles, there can be a direct effect on the overall debt and investment requirements and thus on the capital structure required in the business. The efficient use of secure systems can minimise risk,increase operational security and maximise straight through processing. Add to this automatic reconciliation of bank account data and Treasury can then manage exceptions rather than every item, giving them the time to devote to delivering valued-added services across the company. Cash and liquidity management has always been a key task in every company to ensure debtor, creditor and stock levels are managed as efficiently as possible. When the business environment is more challenging, corporates can gain a competitive advantage through optimal management of every aspect of their financial position: “During times of difficulty, treasurers demonstrate their true worth to the business”. This course is intended to provide finance professionals with up-to-date knowledge of the essential elements of corporate cash and treasury management, how to implement that knowledge in order to deliver valued-added services across the company and to demonstrate their true worth to the business
