The Treasury Today 2014 European Corporate Treasury Benchmarking Study was the fifth and largest study we conducted in the region. Building on the success of previous studies we have been able to pinpoint the salient questions and provide in-depth analysis of the patterns and trends in corporate treasury.

“Benchmarking gives us the opportunity to identify where we stand and how we develop over time among our peers. The external comparison is essential for the progress of a unique corporate function like treasury.”

Our universe

The study attracted close to 350 responses from a broad universe including some of the region’s largest multi-national corporations. Western Europe accounted for 46% of the responses. All the industry sectors are well-represented: Industrials/Construction, Media/Telecommunications/Software/Technology, Consumer Services (Leisure/Retail/Food and Drink), Automotives/Transport, Chemicals/Healthcare/Pharmaceuticals and Energy/Natural Resources. Almost 80% percent of respondents are Group or Regional Treasuries with their HQ based in Europe; 41% are in the €1 billion to €10 billion annual sales turnover range, with a further 29% generating in excess of €10 billion in annual sales globally.
