TREASURY - THE PERFECT ADDITION TO YOUR SKILL SET

Treasury and accountancy as professions go hand-in-hand. The ACT therefore works closely with a global network of accounting bodies. Together we raise the profile of finance professionals, connect like-minded individuals and open doors for opportunities.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACCOUNTANCY AND TREASURY?

Treasury is not accountancy, however the two complement each other perfectly. Accountancy is a key function in any organisation keeping all financial transactions in order. Treasurers are strategic financial managers managing the liquidity of a business and their decisions directly impact the profit, loss and financial health of a company. The most effective CFOs combine the two skill sets to ensure they're approaching all their decisions in the most informed manner.

DISCOVER WHERE TREASURY COULD TAKE YOU

If you’re interested in expanding the finance activities you’re currently involved in and want to influence business decisions at a strategic level in international business, then adding a portable, recognised treasury qualification to your skill set will help you get there.

FAST-TRACK TO SUCCESS

We work closely with partner accounting bodies to map our syllabi and assessments with theirs and where there is overlap, mutual exemptions now apply.
