Leading with Liquidity: Post-Pandemic Cash Management Realities
This spring, corporate cash reserves soared far higher than any treasury professional anticipated in late 2019. That’s one finding of Treasury & Risk’s “2020 Cash Management Survey.”
The rapid, unexpected increase in cash reserves marks one of several ways Covid-19 walloped cash management policies and practices this year. The survey results also show that:
- Maximizing immediately available liquidity is treasurers’ new priority for short-term investments;
- Treasury leaders plan to make significant changes to policies governing cash and short-term investments within the next year; and
- Large global organizations plan to repatriate more of their cash and short-term investments.
