Are you a qualified accountant wanting to broaden your financial skills and explore new career opportunities? Adding treasury to your financial skillset will give you the chance to stand out from the crowd. 

The most effective CFOs combine treasury and accountancy skillsets. You can too. Take advantage of our exemptions to get dual treasury and accounting qualified and shape the future of your organisation’s financial strategy.

If you are an ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW or ICAS qualified accountant, or a reciprocal member of any of these bodies*, you are eligible for a full free-of-charge exemption from the Certificate in Treasury Fundamentals. Further exemptions from units of the higher-level courses mean that you’ll only have to study 3 units instead of 12 units and take three assessments instead of nine assessments to complete the Diploma in Treasury Management.
