'Stressury' Genuine Risk or Fantasy?

How to overcome treasury stresses

These are no more than lines of figures, but they represent astronomical sums and therefore huge financial and operational risks. Treasurers are responsible for generating the highest risk-free returns possible while ensuring there is enough liquidity, minimising cash lying idle, guaranteeing compliance and adhering to ever more numerous regulations. All of these high-pressure tasks contribute to increasing their stress. 

Does this stress stop treasurers sleeping properly at night? Surely not. After spending the day counting cash and keeping down risks, they can go to sleep peacefully counting sheep.

Key Points

  • Is the treasurer’s job stressful?
  • The treasury function has become much more complex over the last few years
  • Take care not to burn out!
  • A shelter from the storm
