Since 2014, Asset Benchmark Research has gathered the views of corporate treasurers and CFOs in Asia on their current and planned treasury activities in the annual Treasury Review.
The survey asks about a range of topics such as their treasury set up, bank relations; risk management; review of treasury solutions and their outlook for the year ahead. Corporates are asked about the challenges they face in their treasury operations both from a daily operational and long-term strategic perspective.
There is also an emphasis on reviewing how corporates leverage technology in their business either to automate payables, improve reconciliation or rationalize banking connectivity. The review is conducted in the first half of the year.
The Asset Client Satisfaction Index
Asset Benchmark Research conducted their Treasury Review from February through to April of this year. As part of the review, respondents were asked to score banks they work with for treasury, cash management and trade finance. These ratings form the basis of The Asset Client Satisfaction Index.
Treasury in Practice
Asset Benchmark Research in partnership with Bank of Communications reached out to 1,123 treasurers and CFOs on their treasury objectives over the next 12 months. This report details the financial risks CFOs and treasurers face in running their businesses and compares the experience of China corporates to those based in the rest of Asia-Pacific. The report also covers cross-border netting practices and the risks and financing activities of Chinese companies relating to overseas M&A.
