JPMorgan Fleming Asset Management has launched its fourth annual Cash Management Survey, for the third successive year in partnership the UK’s Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT). The survey aims to track trends in the corporate cash market and assist treasurers by providing valuable insight into their market position relative to their peers. The results also help to define the pace of market change and illustrate the direction it is taking. Peter Knight, Head of Institutional Liquidity commented: ‘With the survey now in its fourth year, we feel that members will be able to gain valuable insight into the trends of the past few years. Of particular interest last year were the results on outsourcing and credit, which reflected the difficult market conditions and corporates’ heightened awareness of risk.’ The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete and it will be available on the ACT web site. A £5 donation will be made to the International Red Cross per completed survey.
