The banking crisis of 2008, which created financial havoc around the world, caused considerable savings and wealth to evaporate, strained the equity levels of global organisations to unprecedented minimum levels and resulted in money markets, as well as other normally liquid and transparent capital markets, to temporarily freeze up or suspend trading activities. As a result of the substantial losses caused by this tidal wave of financial ruin that occurred in equity stock markets, currency, commodity and derivative markets on a global basis, treasury and cash management functions are now regarded as vital for the stability, security and profitability of all organisations.
Participants attending this EuroMaTech training course will develop the following competencies:
- Improved treasury management skills by adopting the responsibilities and techniques required to ensure optimum organisational liquidity and profitability
- Better prepared to eliminate interest rate and exchange rate risks as well as commodity pricing risks utilising the best available internal and external hedging instruments
- Improve cash management skills as a result of gaining a better understanding of liquidity, and portfolio investment returns
