Welcome to the ACT Middle East Network
The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) is the leading professional body for international treasury, providing a range of professional development and networking opportunities for those working in treasury, risk and corporate finance.
An integral part of the association, the ACT Middle East Network is made up of over 3,500 members from a range of corporations, banks and financial institutions across the GCC. We are committed to the development and sharing of treasury knowledge and expertise across the Middle East.
Since its launch in 2008, membership of the network has grown substantially and services are further extending to support, facilitate and enhance the sharing of treasury skills. ACT Middle East is fast emerging as the number one choice for treasury, risk and finance professionals.
The network includes a team of treasurers that make up the ACT Middle East Committee, which represents the voice of our members across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain. The committee provides advice on key topics and issues in treasury management.
