Typical treasury tasks
Treasurers manage a company’s financial commitments and risks. Typical activities include managing investments, controlling cash flow, reviewing market conditions. They will also advise on financial implications and risks that could affect other departments, such as tax. A treasurer might also manage a team of more junior staff, so there might be team management responsibilities.
It’s also important for a treasurer to develop and progress systems for monitoring cash flow and ensure that all the team’s activities comply with company policies.
Key treasury skills
Treasury managers must be able to present to the company board and relevant stakeholders. They need to liaise with operational staff and investors, as well as senior management. They should know financial markets and keep up with any changes and developments.
They should have a working knowledge of GAAP, extensive knowledge of financial markets, good attention to detail, excellent numeracy and analytical skills and be IT literate for various systems they will be expected to work with.
Qualifications & experience
Treasurers are, typically, degreed in mathematics, economics, or similar (some, though not all will be required to have advanced degrees) and many are required to be CFA qualified. Some organisations will take on graduate trainees and provide training and development across multiple finance functions, including treasury. Finance professionals can take ACT exams to progress into corporate treasury.
A corporate treasury job is a senior management level role, so most treasury manager jobs will have plenty of finance experience, including specific experience in treasury. Group treasurers will often go on to become finance directors and CFOs.
