The treasury control environment
Are the controls appropriate?
Financial scandals have been highlighted in the media to great effect. No one wants to be the next headline.
As a result, legislators and financial authorities have created numerous standards and regulations to address previous concerns of the market. Derivative transactions and the potential losses associated with them continue to put treasury operations under the spotlight.
We are increasingly being asked by audit committees, heads of internal Audit and Treasurers to review and benchmark controls over their treasury operations. There are broadly two key areas of review:
- Protection of the organisations assets
- Financial reporting (internal & external).
The core business of many organisations is very different from corporate treasury operations. Internal Audit heads may be confronted with significant challenges that will lead them to require access to expert resource to undertake the internal audit of the treasury function.
