As treasury departments are increasingly asked to do more with less, practitioners find themselves shouldering tasks that previously may have fallen outside their realm of responsibility.
The latest Treasury in Practice guide, underwritten by GTreasury, explores the most crucial tasks in treasury at three key levels—assistant treasurer, treasury manager and treasury analyst. AFP spoke with a number of treasury professionals who hold or have held these positions to better grasp these duties. We also looked at how advances in technology, such as automation, have changed these tasks over time.
Practitioners will provide insights on the following treasury activities:
- Debt and capital markets
- Capital planning and allocation
- Cash management and forecasting
- FX trade verifications
- Pulling/retrieving bank files
- Setting the cash position
- Reviewing account activity.
As the role of treasury continues to expand and the department absorbs more responsibilities, practitioners will have their work cut out for them. As you attempt to juggle these and new tasks, often without help of more manpower or new technology, this guide may help you in your journey.
