Survey results identified trends in corporate cash investment management practices and highlighted potential opportunities for improvement.
PwC is pleased to share the PwC Cash Investment Survey report. The purpose of the survey is to identify leading practices in corporate cash investment management and provide insight that treasury and finance professionals can apply within their own organizations. In addition to providing insights into how corporates are currently managing their investment portfolios, the survey results reveal that, despite historically high cash balances and low investment yields, the majority of corporates remain reluctant to take more risk in their investment portfolios. Even more than five years removed from the financial crisis of 2008, many corporates remain conservative in their approach to investment risk. Further, despite this conservative orientation, many companies have failed to invest in the people and tools to better manage these risks and enhance investment portfolio performance. The insights around these and other observations captured from the survey are shared in the report.
