JPMorgan Fleming Asset Management has launched its 6th Annual International Cash Management Survey in conjunction with the Association of Corporate Treasurers. The aim of the survey is to allow corporate treasurers across the globe to benchmark themselves against their peers and for them to get a clear understanding of current industry trends. The survey can be accessed via the websites of JPMorgan Fleming and the ACT, and via the banner on the main index of GTNews. As for the last two years, JPMorgan Fleming will donate £5 (USD9, euro7.5) to the International Red Cross for every completed questionnaire. The survey will run from 1st July to 30th September 2004. According to last year’s survey, more than 35% of respondents now look to their key relationship banks to supply asset management services (up from 20% in 2002), with 76% of these companies using money market funds.
