Video icon - ACTAC 2015


The age of treasury is upon us, but what exactly does that mean for your organisation?

Tactics change, principles remain. How do you balance your treasury strategy to deal with today and tomorrow?

Should your treasury be evolutionary - always monitoring trends to keep ahead of the curve? Or will some innovation in treasury systems help you revolutionise your business?

We’ll equip you with the knowledge, expertise and contacts to help answer these questions and many more at the conference next May.

Look out for the preview programme in November.
