SunGard recently commissioned a study among corporate treasury professionals to understand corporate attitudes to cash investment, including strategic cash holdings, asset allocation, investment policies and transaction execution. This follows a similar study conducted in 2011 (a summary of which was published in TMI February 2012) enabling us to identify trends and developments over time.
The study attracted responses from 209 corporations globally. This included respondents from all regions and industries, with over 55% of companies headquartered in North America and a significant number of responses from Europe.
