20 years in treasury: An interactive timeline
This year, The Global Treasurer celebrates its 20th anniversary. Use our interactive timeline to follow the 20-year journey of the industry.
Dramatic change has swept through treasury departments over the last two decades. The industry has weathered the global financial crisis of 2008 and the following onslaught of regulation for financial services. The treasurer has faced significant upheaval in daily treasury operations as a result of technological advances and more.
The future promises more change still.
Global trends, technology and the role of the treasurer in 2025 were discussed by practitioners at the last Treasury Leaders Summit in London. Everyone agreed that treasurers of the future would need to be armed with a dramatically different skillset to those 10 years ago. Strategic thinking, external outlook, and strong communications skills all topped the lists of required assets. All the while treasurers will be required to become centres of excellence for regulation and technology.
