Within the last 30 years, treasury management has gained massively in importance. Tasks that were previously managed after a fashion by the accounting department are now undertaken in dedicated treasury departments, based on high professional standards in terms of expertise and IT tools.

Typically, corporate treasurers accumulate expertise within their specific operational domains, often without delving into the broader spectrum of treasury fields. This limits their ability to comprehend how individual tasks are interconnected in the bigger picture.

Our five-day program aims to bridge this gap by offering an in-depth exploration of all aspects of treasury management. We'll illuminate the intricate web of interdependencies and interactions among these areas, providing participants with a holistic understanding of this dynamic field. Join us for this enlightening journey in the heart of Zurich!
