Winners announced

Treasury Today’s Adam Smith Awards is universally recognised as the ultimate industry benchmark for corporate treasury achievement. These prestigious industry awards are now in their 14th year. Each year the standard of nominations grows ever higher, and this year a record-breaking 309 nominations were received from 40 countries.

At this time, Treasury Today’s first concern is for our staff, our readership and our whole community’s wellbeing. Following the success of our 2020 virtual delivery, we will again run the Adam Smith Awards 2021 digitally.

It has never been more important to share the achievements of our community and we look forward to celebrating this year’s Adam Smith Awards winners at a safe distance with you, our global audience.

We know that you are all working harder than ever to deliver excellence and we want that to be recognised. On 8th June our Publishers hosted a live winners announcement, joined by some of our previous award winners and special guests, and our winners’ list is now online. This announcement and the subsequent Adam Smith Awards season takes the place of our Gala Presentation Lunch.

The 2021 digital Adam Smith Awards season has now been launched, and over the coming months we will host a series of winner podcasts, delving deeper into each winning solution and featuring all Overall Winners and Highly Commended Winners and their key partners. We will also produce case studies on all award winners, to be digitally published in summer.

The Adam Smith Awards is globally recognised as the industry benchmark for best practice and exceptional solutions in treasury, and this year will be no exception. We look forward to celebrating the winners achievements with you all and to bringing our formidable community together once again.
