An Adam Smith Award offers you the opportunity to significantly raise your profile and shine a spotlight on your achievements, enabling you to get the recognition you deserve within your organisation as well as with your clients, peers, investors and the wider treasury community. Our judges now have the challenging task of selecting this year’s award winners.

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.
