The Business of Treasury 2017
THE BUSINESS OF TREASURY 2017: TREASURY TRENDS REPORT
This is the fifth year of our in-depth survey of contemporary treasurers, now titled The Business of Treasury – the only international survey of qualified treasurers by a professional treasury association. In our largest survey to date we have spoken with ACT members across the world to gauge their views on where the treasury profession is today. The findings of the survey deepen our understanding of corporate treasury as a discipline that supports financial and business growth.
The research reinforces the ACT’s belief in the importance of professional standards and of developing skilled and qualified treasury professionals who contribute to their organisation’s success through operational effectiveness and strategic business partnering.
This year we ask additional questions about the role of treasury, the perception of its place in organisational structures and how its performance is measured. We reflect widespread board, CEO and CFO concerns about what is happening in financial markets, where and how regulation will impact business growth and what challenges next generation businesses will face. We have also asked how treasurers feel about their role and how they think it is perceived.
We think you’ll be intrigued by what they have to say.
