About ACT

The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT)is the leading professional body for international treasury providing the widest scope of benchmark qualifications for those working in treasury, risk and corporate finance.

They are relevant to a variety of roles including treasury, accountancy, risk, financial management, banking, relationship management and consultancy. ACT has over 4,500 members and students in over 100 countries.

Changes to ACT Qualifications

As the leading global professional body for treasurers, the ACT offers internationally recognised benchmark qualifications for individuals who operate within the treasury function and those with treasury responsibilities in their roles.

The ACT is committed to upholding the professional standards of treasurers, and those with treasury responsibilities, to help them be more effective in their jobs. As the world's markets change it is important our qualifications continue to reflect the needs of the profession. The changes are a natural part of our ongoing education programme and the ACT's commitment to be the global standard bearer for treasury.

How the qualifications have changed

We have revised our syllabi against the new ACT Competency Frameworkwhich 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 will continue to have the most up to date and relevant qualifications for real world treasury practice.

Introducing the new qualifications pathway

Each qualification has been mapped to the four treasury job levels of the competency framework; tactical, operational, managerial and strategic. The new structure means the ACT offers a progressive learning path for those choosing a career in treasury and qualifying with the ACT will ensure you have exactly the right skills and knowledge demanded by employers today.
