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.
Bracing for Volatility, Embracing Change
Asset Benchmark Research and Thomson Reuters sought the feedback from more than 1,000 corporate treasurers and CFOs in Asia on trends and challenges in their fields. The report features detailed data on, among others, treasury centralization efforts, management of market and non-market financial risks and the adoption of electronic solutions within Asian corporate treasury units.
Our dedicated team converses with respondents either by telephone interview or directing them to an online questionnaire. Face-to-face interviews may also be conducted. Because we speak directly to our respondents instead of merely passing on forms they can fill out, we provide an in-depth look into the perspective of corporates that few others are capable of. Qualitative feedback and observations are transcribed and reported alongside quantitative output, giving subscribers detailed, actionable results.
