Welcome to SYFX Treasury Foundation Website           


Our Story

SYFX Treasury foundation (SYFXTF) is an inspiration of erstwhile Syndicate Bank Treasury professionals. The core group of Syndicate Bank Treasury professionals was formed in the 1990’s with talented individuals. Coincidentally, it was also the time when the Indian Financial Markets were making small strides to embrace liberalism and facilitate growth in FX and Treasury markets of the country. The group had the luxury of continuous learning, personally imparted as well as facilitated externally by the then leaders at Treasury & International Banking Division (T&IBD) of Syndicate Bank at Mumbai. Along with the Indian markets, the alumni of T&IBD of Syndicate Bank, have grown in stature in the past 20-25 years and branched out to various other organizations nationally and internationally. One thing common with every member is their respect for the Gurus, who laid a solid foundation and taught them the intricacies of the markets. The members have imbibed the knowledge as well as best practices from their seniors and ensured to pass on to other people both within the Bank as well as externally.
