Treasury Management: compliance with CIPFA Code - SHARE

Who’s it for and what’s it about?

This course, for senior officers and finance staff, is designed to help you understand the CIPFA code to ensure compliance. The underlying principle that should shape any Treasury Management Policy is that the governing body is risk-averse. The policies and practices outlined within the policy should make clear that the effective management and control of risk are the prime objective of the strategy.

The policy should demonstrate good governance and recognise the crucial role and responsibility the organisation has to deliver good services to tenants, keep the association / co-operative financially healthy and compliant with the conditions in the loan documents.
