Introduction to treasury management

This will be a face-to-face course at the BSA offices in London.

The objective of this course is to introduce participants to treasury management. It provides an overview of treasury operations within financial services, more specifically within building societies and within the regulatory environment. Following this there is an in-depth study of treasury operations, focussing on liquidity, wholesale funding, credit risk and financial risk.

Who should attend?
The course will be of interest to non-executive directors, senior management, risk officers/managers new to the building society world, those in related areas who require some background treasury knowledge, as well as those who have recently started work in the treasury function.
