Evaluate, purchase, or sell investments on behalf of clients.
A Treasury Manager monitors and advises on all financial transactions within a company. The position of Treasury Manager is a multi-skilled one that has you doing everything from evaluating bank fees to making investments. Your job as a Treasury Manager is to take a holistic look at a company’s financial procedures, investigate each component, and then evaluate how they affect the bottom line.
You are involved in the finances of the company from the bottom floor up, often taking part in the planning of financial goals and creation of company policies. This makes you a key player in all decisions pertaining to investing, trade, and everyday operating costs. And since companies use debt to meet goals, you evaluate interest rates, loan terms, and banking fees to help management decide which loans to take. When the loan process is complete, you monitor payment schedules.
Investments are another major component of a business’s financial plan. So you evaluate potential investments and fees, advise Managers about risks and details, and appraise stock, company, and land purchases or sales.
You also provide guidance on matters of international trade. Even the slightest tweak in a currency exchange policy can have a huge affect on a business who regularly buys or sells internationally. For your part, you evaluate the currency exchange process, look for ways to reduce costs, and implement policies. As part of this responsibility, you often travel to meet with suppliers and clients to explain policies and discuss trade or shipping options.
