ACT Competency Framework

Overview of the Framework

The ACT Competency Framework is the result of consultation with senior treasurers, banks and learning and development teams.

The framework defines the competencies treasurers need to operate successfully in global business today.

It identifies three key areas of treasury competency:

  • Technical skills
  • Business skills and
  • Behaviourial skills


The skills a treasurer needs over their career varies according to seniority.

For this reason the competencies have been benchmarked and mapped to different job levels:

  1. Tactical
  2. Operational
  3. Managerial and
  4. Strategic


Whether you are looking to take your first steps into treasury, are heading up a global treasury department or need to recruit or train a treasury team, the competency framework offers you guidance on what the global standards are for successful treasury.
