The definitive industry benchmark

With nominations now closed, Treasury Today can announce that the 2013 Adam Smith Awards has once again attracted impressive entries from some of the world’s most innovative treasuries.

The number and sheer quality of submissions surpassed all our expectations. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who participated this year.

More than 200 entries were received from 25 different countries and from a diverse world of industry sectors. This year’s programme has attracted entries from some of the world’s largest organisations, along with a strong representation from the mid-market enterprise (MME)/small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) universe. We are delighted to see such a range which realises our ambition that these Awards are open to all, irrespective of company size.

Over half the submissions were global entries, reinforcing the corporate treasurer’s ever-increasing role and responsibilities. In terms of the benefits cited, process efficiencies, risks removed/mitigated, productivity gains and cost savings were the most popular boxes ticked, with some extremely impressive results.

Our judging panel now has the daunting task of first short-listing and then making their final decisions on the winning entries.

We look forward to celebrating your achievements during our Awards Lunch at a prestigious venue in the City of London on 20th June.
