About The Association of Corporate TreasurersThe ACT supports the development of professional standards and best practice both inside and outside of treasury. We do this through our competency framework, which defines the skills and competencies needed by treasury professionals to operate successfully in today’s challenging business climate, our professional qualifications and accredited programmes.
We are committed to continuing professional development (CPD), proudly so following our Royal Charter in 2013, and to helping treasurers and those with treasury responsibilities be more effective in their jobs and perform the vital role they play in business today.
Why study ACT qualifications?
The economy depends on strong financial markets which in turn need skilled and trained people to manage the cash and the risks that will ultimately drive growth in international trade. Underpinned by the ACT Competency Framework, ACT qualifications provide the practical tools and professional benchmark for skilled treasury performance and together with ACT membership, offer a trusted, credible and recognised standard.
How the qualifications have changed?
We have revised our syllabi against the new ACT Competency Framework which is the result of consultation with senior treasurers from multinational corporations, banks and learning and development teams worldwide. Mapping our qualifications against the skills and competencies of the framework means we continue to have the most up to date and relevant qualifications for real world treasury practice.
The ACT difference
Choosing to study an ACT qualification is just the start. Only once you qualify, and take up your ACT membership, can you use your designatory letters. These are what really set you apart and offer a mark of professional distinction to your employers, peers and clients. Of course there are other providers of treasury training, but your membership of the chartered body for the profession shows you are serious about your career in treasury and committed to maintaining the very highest standards.
