Chris Bellamy, Director of Finance & Treasury – Grand Union Housing Group ​ titantreasury has revolutionised the way we manage and control our treasury portfolio. It provides us an effective and efficient way to control and validate interest budgets and reporting functionality enables us to not only take control of our performance reporting in the treasury area but also enable quicker and more informed decision making.​
