The Adam Smith Awards Asia have been running since 2014 and this year a record-breaking 349 entries were received. This demonstrates the resilience, collaboration, creativity, cooperation, teamwork, innovation, value of relationships and sheer hard work during such unprecedented times for sure.
Across the world, an Adam Smith Award is recognised as the ultimate industry benchmark for corporate treasury best practice. Our range of 2019 award categories is tailored to honour corporates across the Asia Pacific region for their achievements; this year’s record-breaking 300 nominations did not disappoint. Our panel of judges had the exceptionally challenging task once again of selecting the very best solutions in each category with several very hotly contested. This year’s winners are the region’s very best and brightest treasury professionals, demonstrating exceptional innovation, creativity and collaboration across Asia’s corporate treasury arena.
The Adam Smith Awards Asia 2018, now in their sixth year, attracted a record-breaking 221 nominations this year. We are absolutely delighted with the continued success of the programme which recognises the very best and brightest treasury teams across the Asia Pacific region. It therefore gives us great pleasure to introduce this 2018 Yearbook, showcasing all the winning solutions in each of the categories available.
The Adam Smith Awards Asia programme is now in its fifth year and we are delighted to introduce the 2017 Yearbook, showcasing all of 2017’s winning solutions. The awards were introduced into Asia Pacific (APAC) specifically to recognise exceptional corporate achievement in this dynamic region.
This is the second year of our Adam Smith Awards Asia and we are delighted to have ANZ as our sponsor. These awards were introduced into the Asia Pacific (APAC) region specifically to honour corporates operating in the region for their strategies and achievements and we have not been disappointed.
Earlier in 2014, we celebrated the seventh year of Treasury Today’s Adam Smith Awards which are now recognised as the industry benchmark for corporate treasury achievement globally. The programme has gone from strength to strength. As a result, in January, we decided to introduce Adam Smith Awards Asia specifically to honour corporates operating in the Asia Pacific region for their strategies and achievements.
