Treasurers are strategic financial managers and their decisions directly impact the profit, loss and financial health of a company. They operate as the interface between the company and the financial markets. Treasurers have varied and dynamic roles, dealing with both internal and external stakeholders, and are vital to every organisation’s success and survival.
The financial crisis has heightened the profile of treasury, increasing its influence and perceived value within organisations. More than ever, corporate treasurers and those engaged in treasury are relied upon by their CFOs and boards to source efficient, innovative financial solutions to facilitate business strategy and manage risk.
Treasury management professionals work in hundreds of different roles with countless different organisations across the world. So, it’s no surprise that treasury is known as ‘the international language of strategic business finance’.
As a qualified treasurer you can expect to be well rewarded for your work. Experienced treasurers can earn a six figure salary, with additional higher earning potential and many other benefits.
