New Year Greetings

New Year Greetings to all our readers from the team at Treasury Today. Thank you for your comments and suggestions in the year 2000. Our aim is to exceed your expectations in 2001 and to carry on bringing you the right information in the monthly newsletter and the special reports.

New clothes

You will see that the newsletter has a new cover for 2001 but let us assure you that despite our new clothes we are not toning down our approach. We will continue to investigate what is going on and report back to you our readers.

The rate information

A new feature this month is an insert in the newsletter – the first Treasury Today Fact Sheet. These sheets of information are produced on laminated card so that they can be kept as a separate reference source. This month we feature FX rates for the date that is (technically) the end of the twentieth century.

This will become a piece of history as the “euro in” currencies are still listed in their constituent form. These currencies will fade away during the course of this year. If you would like to receive the Fact Sheet please email with your full name, job title and company address.

Incidentally, these rates also appear updated each week in the database section at the Treasury Today website –


The changes you see and the topics we cover are a direct result of your feedback. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions – you can phone me any time on 013 0462 0542 or email me I look forward to hearing from you.

Managing Director
