Make Risk Count.

Treasury Policy

Having an effective treasury policy, and sticking to it, means your organisation will make educated financial decisions, no matter how difficult.

Barrington encourages clients to have a formal Treasury Policy. It keeps focus on identifying, assessing, managing and reporting treasury risks. Rather than engaging in potentially risky knee-jerk responses to external influences such as market developments, a policy eliminates crystal ball gazing.

The best kind of policy is one that is carefully integrated with wider organisational culture, objectives and structure. Having a clear, mutually agreed – and enforced – set of rules provides Boards with firm boundaries that aid decision-making in even the most difficult circumstances. Management can respond rapidly because it knows which decisions and actions are acceptable or otherwise.

A Treasury Policy enables Boards and management to have the courage of their own convictions.
