About the TMI Awards

For over 25 years, Treasury Management International (TMI) has been dedicated to promoting best practices and innovations in treasury management.

We take pride in the significant input we have made to the development of the treasury and finance profession by promoting the growth of treasury associations and clubs around the world, providing new insights into treasury and supporting treasurers in their efforts to find new ways to add value to their organisations.

Since we introduced the TMI Awards for Innovation & Excellence more than a decade ago, these Awards have become firmly established as the quality benchmark for the treasury profession, formally recognising the banks, vendors, consultants and practitioners who are defining new frontiers and driving best practices in treasury management globally.

We have established a qualitative approach to the submissions and judging process, thereby providing greater consistency and transparency in the awards criteria. By doing so, we hope to further enhance the value of the TMI Awards for winners, and how these are recognised across the wider profession.

If you represent a bank, technology vendor, consultancy or corporate treasury, you can nominate your own organisation for an award in the relevant category. In addition, you can choose to nominate one or more third parties for an Award. For example, as a corporate treasurer, you may wish to nominate a bank, vendor or consultancy in recognition of innovation and excellence in the services you have received. Similarly, banks, vendors and consultancies may choose to nominate their customers.
