A Risk-Averse Approach to Cash Investment
Findings of the Corporate Cash Investment Study 2013
by Vince A. Tolve, vice president, and Michael F. Vogel, senior vice president, SunGard’s brokerage business
SunGard recently commissioned a study amongst corporate treasury professionals to understand attitudes to cash investment, including strategic cash holdings, asset allocation, investment policies and transaction execution. This follows similar studies conducted in 2011 and 2012, allowing trends and developments to be monitored over time.
The study attracted responses from 161 corporations globally. This included respondents from all regions and industries, with 49% of companies headquartered in North America and a significant number of responses from Europe. Most of these had a centralised approach to treasury management, with 91% of respondent organisations having either a single global treasury centre or regional treasury centres.
