Financial Products & Associated Risk Management

Budgeting and Financial Management - Part 2 (2019)


This eCourse consists of two modules. Module 1 provides a high-level overview of cash management and highlights key aspects of the cash management process that must be considered. Cash management focuses on three areas: collecting revenues, paying expenses and debts, and balancing the need to keep cash on hand with the need to invest in projects. Effective cash management is therefore vital to a company’s long-term health.

Module 2 provides a high-level overview of credit management and highlights the key processes and procedures that can help ensure debts are paid on time and in full. Credit provision raises risks, in particular the risk that customers may not repay their debts. Effective credit management processes are needed to help manage this risk.
