Association of Corporate Treasurers

The Association of Corporate Treasurers (or ACT for short) was founded in 1979. It is the only British professional body specialising in the profession of corporate treasury.

Professional membership of the ACT may be obtained at two levels:

* Associateship
* Membership

The Associateship qualification is set at professional entry level and gives a thorough overview of the fundamentals of treasury management. These concepts are developed further in the Membership examinations.

Associates use the designatory letters AMCT, while members are entitled to use the letters MCT. Senior members may obtain Fellowship of the Association, and use the designatory letters FCT.

Most members of the ACT are also qualified accountants who belong a Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies member organisation.

The ACT is a leading member of the [http://www.igta.org International Group of Treasury Associations] , an umbrella body for corporate treasury organisations worldwide.
