Knowledge is power

Genuine market intelligence on the performance of corporate treasury functions is hard to come by. It is also extremely hard to ignore. That’s why your peers are using the findings of Treasury Today’s Corporate Benchmarking Programme to report to the C-suite and to set their treasury agenda.

During 2014, Treasury Today’s Research Team will again be conducting Corporate Treasury Benchmarking Studies across the Middle East, Europe and Asia Pacific regions. Our well-rounded data across these geographies puts the performance of your treasury department into context, helping you to showcase your department’s strengths. It can also assist treasury leaders to build the business case for investment in new treasury technology, or to kick off discussions with relationship bank(s) around the depth and breadth of services currently being delivered.

Return on investment

In exchange for just 20 minutes of your time, taking part in Treasury Today’s benchmarking programme will allow you to:

  • Access a personalised benchmarking report featuring an in-depth KPI module. This compares the organisation’s treasury KPIs across the key treasury disciplines with those in the confidential respondent universe. An industry sector comparison is also included.

  • Develop or update performance targets for your treasury team, based on the best in class results in your region or sector.

  • Discover the issues that are top of the agenda for your peers and sense check your treasury strategy to make sure that you have all bases covered.

  • Rank your relationship banks across three relevant solution sets, and give your view on their product innovation, customer service and technology.

  • Make your voice heard by highlighting improvements that you would like to see in the future from service providers and have a real influence on their agenda

Added-value

Our 2014 Studies will again focus on the key issues affecting corporate treasury but will dig deeper into the areas you have asked us to explore further. We will enhance the KPI module to ensure we continue to provide real value. Many of you have found these metrics extremely valuable as we now benchmark your KPIs against the study universe as well as your particular industry sector. You will be able to monitor improvements since last year’s Studies in a number of important areas.

The Middle East Study launches first so, if you have responsibility for treasury and cash management in the Middle East region, please participate and have your say.

Peace of mind

The cornerstone of our benchmarking surveys is candid input from corporate treasurers, for corporate treasurers. It’s about tapping collective knowledge to build a better treasury function. We guarantee 100% anonymity to all corporates who participate. So, even when your closest competitor or bank relationship manager purchases the findings of the Study (only participants receive complimentary copies), they will not be able to identify that you have participated, or access any confidential information about your company.
