Purpose-Led Treasury with Martin Watts


About this episode

Most guests on the Treasury Career Corner podcast are involved in multinational corporations, but this week I interview Martin Watts, Director of Treasury at social housing provider London and Quadrant (L&Q). Treasury operates differently in every business, but with no private shareholders and all profits being reinvested into the community they serve, L&Q is an entirely different operation to the usual businesses profiled on the podcast. This was a fascinating look at a unique business model that should be of interest to many treasury professionals. On the podcast we discussed…
  • What Martin’s journey into treasury looked like and the many twists and turns its taken since
  • What social housing is and how a social housing provider operates
  • Why there is more in common between social and FTSE100 businesses than one might think
  • The evolution of treasury in social housing provision
  • Where awards have value (and where they’re pointless)
