Technical Guidance and Comment

As the chartered professional body for treasury we work hard on a number of fronts – policy submissions and consultations, technical updates, and interactions with regulators and legislators to address issues for treasury practitioners and help improve professional standards in the financial sector.

Our knowledge base and technical archive is fully searchable using the search function to the right and further resources are available through the Treasurer's Wiki. An overview of the key technical aspects of treasury is available through the competency framework.
