We're delighted to have released the results of our Spring 2019 Salary Survey, an invaluable document that aims to provide the treasury community with a clear and factual picture of the treasury market as a whole. It not only allows for accurate salary benchmarking on a global scale, but also an understanding of the opinions and behaviours of those operating in this demanding and ever-changing industry. Here's what the results revealed on the Senior treasury market...GENERAL MARKET TRENDSIt has been an interesting year from a senior treasury perspective with mixed reactions to the economic twists and turns that have been taking effect. On the one hand, small to mid-scale businesses have sought to strengthen their finance and treasury functions through the creation of Head of Treasury / Group Treasurer level roles, which has opened up a number of new opportunities for those ready to take the step into the top job and subsequently, provided promotion opportunities for those further down the chain. Conversely, in the larger scale businesses, the common view amongst senior and exec level treasury professionals (i.e. Assistant, Deputy, International / Regional and Group Treasurer levels) has been to stay put and ride the storm. The net result has been a drop in the number of new positions opening-up in this space.
