The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) as a professional body and educator of treasury professionals is both a first and second source for the treasury profession. This wiki therefore contains both original research, comment and opinion as well as material based on the work and publication of other bodies. No warranty is given or implied regarding the accuracy or fitness of any article on this wiki and all information is used at the visitor's own risk.

All content policies on this page are in addition to the ACT's standard terms and conditions[1]. These content policies may be revised at any time.

Copyright and re-publication

By posting on this website you grant the ACT a perpetual non-exclusive right to the content for use on this website, and for fair use citation in related publications. You also agree that the submitted content may be edited, updated and removed as deemed appropriate to the aims and editing style of this website by the ACT.

Content on this site may not be reproduced in whole without the express permission of the ACT except in the case of the original rights holder who maintains full ownership of the original version of the submitted content to publish as that person or entity sees fit.

Any content submission may be refused or later removed by the ACT without explanation. The publication of any submitted contribution does not imply that the ACT either supports or warrants the usefulness and accuracy of that content.

This wiki may include content which is fully available in the public domain, in which case the ACT claims no particular right to use or restricted use of the content, except in so far as the content is original writing describing the public domain concept.

Fair use citation

Organisations may re-publish up to 10% of any article's word count in either print or electronic format (or both), but must include a link to the original article source on for each re-publication made. Re-publication in these terms means each time a single article is quoted whether on one page or screen, or multiple screens. Each link must be clearly visible and associated with the quote, and may be embedded within the quote.

  • removal of the content.

You must provide full details of your ownership of the content including where and when it was originally published, and the change you would like made to the article page(s). We will respond as quickly as possible to your request but only once we have properly verified the source of the content.

Contributing content

Direct editing of The Treasurer's Wiki will soon be available to ACT members and students and selected non-members.

  • The link to the original publication location which will be used as an external link or footnote reference (this may not be a direct commercial link)

By submitting an article to the ACT you accept that you are giving the ACT the perpetual non-exclusive right to publish the article in full or part on any location on this website (but not on any other ACT website). Each use of the content on a wiki article will include one or more footnote citations references, and where possible, linked to the original source material.
