Course structure and program

Day one

It’s all about: Treasury strategy and organisation

Before you dive in, you’ll be greeted by the friendly ACT team and have the chance to get acquainted with your fellow international delegates and trainers. You’ll meet like-minded people and hopefully make some great contacts too! We conclude the first day with networking drinks kindly hosted by Zanders – a great opportunity to relax and talk some more with your fellow classmates and trainers.

Day two

Focus on: Financial risk management

Today you’ll build on the risk management framework, as focus shifts to practical application. You’ll look at foreign exchange risk management, different derivatives used to hedge FX risk, financial hedging instruments, credit risk management and measurement of counterparty credit risk.

Day three

We talk: Cash management and treasury processes and systems

Drawing on content from Zanders’ many years of experience working with global corporate treasuries, we examine all aspects of daily cash management operations, look at what tools are at treasury’s disposal for managing their department more efficiently and identify opportunities for optimising processes and systems. We conclude day three with an optional dinner (self-funded) – another great opportunity to continue the chat with your fellow classmates and trainers.

Day four

Exploring: Corporate finance

Your last day starts with a look at concepts behind corporate financing and the risk to shareholder value and concludes with the execution of your corporate finance strategy.
Our experienced trainers use real-life examples, group work, cases studies and exercises throughout to encourage interaction. So come prepared to ask questions and get stuck into discussions to get the most out of your experience!
