About management systems
What is Treasury Management?

Treasury management or treasury operations is management of an organisation’s holdings, with the goal of managing the firm's liquidity and minimize its operational and financial risk. Treasury Management includes a firm's payments, investment, and funding activities.

In larger firms, it may also include financial risk management. This is the practice of protecting the economic value in a company using financial instruments to manage exposure to financial risk, such as operational-, credit- and market risk.

In general, a company's treasury operations are under the control of the CFO, Vice-President / Director of Finance or Treasury Manager, and is handled on a day-to-day basis by the organization's treasury staff, controller, or financial staff.

What is Portfolio Management?

Portfolio management or asset management is the practice of increasing total wealth over time by acquiring, maintaining, and trading securities that have the potential to grow in value. Asset management has the goal to increase value and minimize the risk at the same time. Portfolio Management is the science of selecting a group of investments that meet the long-term financial objectives and risk tolerance of a client, a company, or an institution.

Portfolio management is important in investment corporations, family offices, insurance companies, pension funds and banks.

The daily tasks include management of an organisation’s investments. This includes follow-up og portfolio strategies, risk management, performance, and benchmarking. It also includes accounting and tax.

What is Leasing Management?

Leasing management or lease administration is the day-to-day execution of responsibilities linked to a company’s lease portfolio. It includes reporting, accounting (i.e., IFRS 16) and other administrative tasks.

Every lease contract has specifications and obligations that must be fulfilled, and someone is usually in charge of completing them.

The lease was earlier only seen as an expense of the company and keeping track of commitments and lease conditions was not a top priority. However, lease management has evolved into a critical practice that has an impact on financial reporting.

If a company want to comply with IFRS 16, you will need a leasing management system to calculate the lease obligation (debt in the balance sheet), “Right-to-use” (asset in the balance sheet), interest, instalments and accruals.
