JPMorgan Fleming Asset Management has launched its fifth annual Cash Management Survey. For the fourth year running the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) will be partnering the survey. The Cash Management Survey (which can be accessed via the banner on the main index of GTNews) aims to build a detailed profile of the corporate treasury market, and determine how corporate treasurers are managing their money – and how they expect to do so in the future. The results will help to define the way the market is changing, and the direction it is taking. Topics covered in the survey include: the use of third party providers, and a detailed look at the Internet and cash portal use by treasurers. This years survey will expand its reach across the three major global regions – Asia, US and Europe. Peter Knight, Head of Institutional Liquidity commented: ‘With the survey now in its fifth year, we feel that ACT members will be able to gain valuable insight into cash management trends of the past few years.’
