Cash Management in a Post-Pandemic Landscape
For most executives, 2020 was consumed by short-term crisis management in the face of Covid-driven turbulence. Now, they are entering a period of reflection as their companies reposition themselves for sustainable growth in a transformed landscape.
Cash managers are no exception. They are grappling with competing pressures: managing heightened credit and liquidity risks in the short term, while paying close attention to longer-term concerns, such as sustainable investing and the impact of low interest rates.
To find out how cash managers are addressing these pressures, In 2020 State Street Advisors partnered with Longitude, a Financial Times company, to carry out a global survey of 300 senior executives with cash management responsibilities. We also conducted in-depth interviews with treasurers across a range of sectors, and with cash investment leaders at investment firms.
