What will I learn in the Treasury Management Training Course?
In the Treasury Management Training Course, you will learn the management of an enterprise’s holdings, with the ultimate goal of managing the firm’s liquidity and mitigating its operational, financial, and reputational risk. You will also learn how to manage a firm’s collections, disbursements, concentration, investment, and funding activities to include trading in bonds, currencies, financial derivatives, and the associated financial risk management.
A treasurer has a broad range of responsibilities in the modern corporation, ranging from cash management to risk management. The treasurer is responsible for the proper movement of potentially large amounts of funds and the construction of hedges, which call for integrating a comprehensive set of controls into a broad-based procedural framework. Modules cover the general categories of cash management, financing, risk management, and treasury systems.
We divide the course into four sections. In Part One, you will learn the various methods by which a company transfers cash, both on paper and by electronic means, and then shown how to create a cash forecast and monitor its accuracy. We then cover several methods for aggregating cash from many locations so the treasurer can more effectively disposition funds. A separate module addresses working capital components and how they may be altered, impacting cash flow planning.
In Part Two, you will learn what the treasurer does to raise debt and equity, as well as how to invest funds to include a discussion of the various kinds of debt and key characteristics of each one, how to deal with credit rating agencies, and the intricacies of equity offerings. The coverage of investments includes investment criteria, available investments, and investment and risk reduction strategies.
In Part Three, you will learn about risk management, an increasingly important aspect of the treasurer’s responsibilities. Risk management includes the objectives and strategies of both interest rate and foreign exchange risk management and the available risk mitigation tools available to the treasurer.
In Part Four, you will learn about the technology that drives many treasury transactions, including an overview of the clearing and settlement systems used in the United States, the functions of a treasury management system, and a discussion of how corporations can access the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) network.
Throughout the course, you are provided examples to clarify concepts and specific accounting requirements of key treasury transactions and related controls, policies, and procedures, with the intent of providing a treasurer with a complete framework for setting up and operating the treasury department.
The course answers a multitude of questions involved in running a treasury department, such as:
- How do I calculate the cost-effectiveness of a lockbox?
- How do I create a cash forecast?
- How do I set up a cross-border cash pool?
- How does notional pooling work?
- What policy changes can I implement to alter the investment in working capital?
- How can I securitize my accounts receivable?
- What types of exemptions are available from the stock registration rules?
- How do I set up a tranched cash flow strategy?
- How do I integrate risk mitigation into my investment strategy?
- How do I use forwards, futures, swaps, and options within my hedging strategy?
- How does the continuous link settlement system reduce settlement risk?
- What features should I look for in a treasury management system?
