The 2007 survey attracted corporate treasurers from around the world who provided constructive feedback. With such a wide and varied range of respondents, the survey, which has again been compiled in conjunction with The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT), continues to provide valuable insights into the current dynamics that drive the cash management industry.
As in previous years we are very pleased to have received the support of the European Associations of Corporate Treasurers (EACT), which has helped to boost the number of responses from across Continental Europe.
Despite the increased number of surveys now being conducted in the sector, this year’s Global Cash Management Survey has been successful in attracting a record number of respondents from across the world. In total, 339 qualifying responses were received, fifty percent more than last year. The majority of these, 290, were received electronically, with the remainder completing an identical, hard-copy version of the questionnaire.
The responses this year are particularly interesting because the Survey took place over the summer, at the start of the credit market difficulties. Where possible we have tried to separate the online responses (which can be accurately dated) into those received before September, and those that were returned during or after September, to see if we can see any noticeable changes in responses.
