2017 AFP Strategic Role of Treasury Survey

Supported by:

The role of Treasury continues to expand beyond cash management, and its function is increasingly playing a more central role in corporate decision-making. While the economy has greatly improved in the decade since the financial crisis, there remains a great deal of uncertainty and business leaders remain focused on managing risk and liquidity. Eighty percent of survey respondents believe that treasury’s role will grow further at their companies over the next three years. As their roles expand, Treasurers’ main focus is on cash management and forecasting. Approximately two-thirds of organizations measure their treasury’s success in its ability to reduce borrowing costs, and achieve liquidity targets.
