ALMA - Asset & Liability Management Association Limited




The ACT accredits the ALMA CertBALM® qualification, which was created by ALMA in 2017, with guidance from the ACT, to ensure the highest standards for asset & liability risk management practitioners in leading banks and building societies.

The CertBALM® is a unique qualification designed and run by experienced industry practitioners combining both theory and application to manage a bank’s balance sheet.   It is a benchmark Level 6 Professional Qualification and equates to 200 hours of learning over six months.  

Whilst  the CertBALM® is specifically designed for those working in or wishing to understand treasury management in financial institutions, the ACT is more focussed on a broader corporate environment. The ACT and ALMA strive to raise the profile of the profession, share best practice and ensure growth within the finance profession to the global benefit of all.

In support of our continuing relationship and in order to promote the highest standards across treasury, while supporting professionals in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their careers, the ACT is offering a discount for all ALMA members.

The ACT qualifications, underpinned by the ACT Competency Framework, are designed as a pathway to provide the practical tools and professional benchmark for skilled treasury performance. This pathway is designed to support you and your team at every level of your/their career, from the fundamentals of treasury and cash management, all the way through to our master’s level strategic treasury qualification.
