Treasury expertise

Barbican Consulting was established in 1991 by William Webster. It provides specialist consulting and training in the area of treasury. It has worked with over 115 clients. These are mainly financial institutions. This is to both large and small firms and at all levels within these firms.

Since the crisis treasury has been the focus of much greater attention. There are a wide range of interconnected issues. Many can cause concern. That means more questions from regulators, auditors and boards about day-to-day dealing activities. In particular what risks are being run, how they are measured and managed and whether they are within the firm's and regulator's appetite. 

To answer these questions requires knowledge and expertise. Furthermore it requires an understanding of your business.

This can only be achieved with experience and that's what Barbican Consulting offers you.

William R. Webster
