Treasurer's Guidebook

Description:
The treasurer is responsible for a broad range of activities, which include bank relations, cash forecasting, investments, fund raising, risk management, and even insurance. These are critical high-risk activities, so the treasurer must also have a detailed knowledge of processes, controls, and treasury management systems. The Treasurer’s Guidebook addresses all of these topics and more, with the intent of giving a new treasurer a solid grounding in how to perform the job.
The book is divided into three sections. In Chapters 1 through 10, we focus on the core treasury activities, which begin with an overview of treasury management and then walk through all major job functions. In Chapters 11 through 13, we cover ancillary treasury functions that may not always be in included in a treasurer’s job description. These functions are insurance, credit management, and working capital management. In Chapters 14 through 17, we cover the treasury back office, which deals with administrative functions. Table of Contents
