While in terms of significance the treasury department and activity is
fundamental to any business, this position does not necessarily mean it
will be heavily staffed in terms of the number of resources.
As any business grows the treasury issues become more complex. There are
challenges in this development life cycle which may include the formal
establishment of a treasury function, the formalisation of an
appropriate structure and reporting lines, the introduction or
up-grading of systems and the continued development of the policies and
procedures to best meet the business needs.
These challenges can lead to a range of competing business priorities.
