Investments in stocks, bonds or funds require a systematic approach to return targets and risk appetite. But debtors are also confronted with cost targets and risks in financing. Since the treasurer's task is mostly to define the corresponding targets, the seminar addresses the tension between risk and return (in the sense of Markowitz's portfolio theory), possible portfolio targets and performance measurement. Furthermore, the question is addressed which components a complete guideline must contain in order to fulfill this task.
- What are the tasks of the cash manager in the company?
- What are the minimum standards to be taken into account in the organizational structure & process organization?
- What are the differences in the accounting or treasury perspective? Which business management approaches do you need to understand?
- What are the requirements vis-à-vis banks?
- What are the current trends in cash management for large and small companies?
Risk and return
- How can risk be measured?
- How is portfolio risk (value-at-risk, VaR) calculated and what role do correlations play?

- What goals do debtors pursue?
- What are the goals of investors?
- Which instruments fit the purpose of a plant?
- What influence does the investment horizon have on the investment decision?
- What are the components of an investment (or debt) portfolio policy?

- What is a benchmark and what is it used for?
- How is a capital-weighted return calculated and what does it say?
- How do we calculate a time-weighted return and what does it say?
