Can a fresh graduate with no relevant experience become a Treasury Specialist?
There is almost no chance as Treasury Specialists need to be capable in both execution and advisory.
What skills do you need to have?
Other than knowledge of foreign exchange and interest rates through spots, forwards and options, the Treasury Specialist needs to keep track of the latest financial news, foreign exchange rates, interbank rates, central bank rates, interest rates movements, interest rate hike/cut, gold prices, oil prices, metals & commodities, major economic indicators and material financial market movements.

Is there any certification to have?
Yes, financial advisory in most countries are regulated. Like all Wealth Managers and Investment Advisors, Treasury Specialists are required to have the relevant capital market license. As the regulatory requirements are constantly changing and being enhanced, there may be new certifications to have.
What prior background would increase the chances?
Most Treasury Specialists come from trading background such as Stockbroking, Fixed Income, Equities, FX or Money Market Traders. Some were already in the Treasury team doing Treasury Settlements & Operations and are hired because they fit into the role quickly with their knowledge and understanding.
Relationship Managers, Personal Bankers, Priority Bankers, Private Bankers and Investment Advisors are also good candidates as a Treasury Specialist as they already have experience advising clients on Treasury products.
