Published: Apr 2016

Nominations open June 13th

Our Adam Smith Awards Asia programme is now in its third year and we are delighted to announce our continued partnership with ANZ for these prestigious awards.

The programme recognises best practice and innovation in corporate treasury within the Asia Pacific region. Nominations open on June 13th 2016 and there are 17 award categories in total so there should be at least one category to capture the achievements of you, your project(s) and/or your team(s). If you believe your work has gone above and beyond the call of duty, now is the time to put yourself forward.

Why nominate?

The Treasury Today Group has been successfully running the Adam Smith Awards programme globally for nine years now. These awards are the pinnacle of best practice and innovation in corporate treasury and are an excellent way to demonstrate to senior management the value that treasury brings to your organisation.

The benefits of entering the Adam Smith Awards Asia extend far beyond collecting a prestigious crystal award in November. Here are just three reasons why you should be part of the action:

  • Raise your treasury team’s profile.
  • Showcase innovation and thought leadership.
  • Demonstrate excellence to your peers, partners, clients and investors.

How to enter

Everything you need, including the nomination form, can be found at treasurytoday.com/adam-smith-awards-asia. It is a simple case of completing and submitting the short form online – which should take no more than 15 minutes of your time.

Any number of solutions can be entered for consideration. A single project can also be nominated in more than one category, where appropriate. Nominations can be made by any corporate, and banks and service providers can assist their clients in completing the nomination form. Banks and service providers are also able to submit nominations on behalf of their corporate clients (with the client’s approval). Nominations close on September 9th 2016.

All winners will receive an invitation to the Adam Smith Awards Asia Gala Presentation Lunch on November 17th at The South Beach in Singapore.

Top tips

Above all, our panel of judges will be looking for solutions that showcase the industry’s best and brightest and demonstrate exceptional best practice and innovation in the Asian corporate treasury arena.

There should be evidence of true effectiveness and of how you as a company benefited tangibly from the project. Have you implemented a solution that has delivered or leveraged any of the following for example:

  • Outstanding cost savings.
  • Above average ROI.
  • Optimal account/treasury structure.
  • Quantitative improvements in efficiency.
  • Cutting-edge technology.
  • Exceptional implementation (budget/time).
  • Quality accreditation.

Testimonials, figures, and any supporting documentation can be included with submissions.

The Adam Smith Awards Asia are open to companies operating in Asia Pacific (regardless of their home base which can be within or without the region). The examples of best practice nominations should be deals and structures that have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented in 2015 and/or 2016.

Please don’t be dissuaded from submitting a nomination in the event you feel your company may not qualify for whatever reason. You do not need to be a major multinational to qualify. Focus on the problem that the solution you have implemented, or are in the process of implementing, addresses. Quantify the benefits, both qualitative as well as quantitative.
