Book now

This two-week course combines:
Treasury Management: 05 days
Public Debt Management: Issues and Solutions: 05 days

This new toolkit programme brings together two subjects closely linked to the overall financial health of an organisation: treasury and debt management. These two areas help organisations to see financial flows and available spending, in order to make more informed decisions on financial planning and the acquisition and use of funds.

In week one, delegates will explore how effective monitoring of treasury resources can ensure that the organisation has the cash resources it needs when it needs them, while managing risk, minimising the cost of debt and optimising the returns on investment.

In the second week, you will studying the fundamental principles of public debt management and develop an understanding of the latest tools and techniques to manage your debt portfolios effectively. Current events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and global supply chain disruption, will be taken into account.

This programme is essential learning for anyone with responsibilities for cash management or managing debt and investments at an organisational or national level.

Case studies will illustrate the practical application of the techniques covered and trainers will work with delegates on the real-life issues they face in their own organisation to provide you a full understanding of these two fundamental financial areas.
