Treasury Management

Treasury management is the management of the local authority’s investments and cash flows, its banking, money market and capital market transactions; the effective control of the risks associated with those activities; and the pursuit of optimum performance consistent with those risks.

The Treasury Management Strategy covers:

  • the capital plans (including prudential indicators);
  • a minimum revenue provision (MRP) policy (how residual capital expenditure is charged to revenue over time);
  • the treasury management strategy (how the investments and borrowings are to be organised) including treasury indicators; and
  • an investment strategy (the parameters on how investments are to be managed).

2015/16 Treasury Management Strategy.

The Annual Treasury Review provides details of a selection of actual prudential and treasury indicators and actual treasury operations compared to the estimates within the strategy.

The review will be published here as soon as it is ready.
