Cash remains a critical factor for corporations as the economy struggles back to its feet. The senior finance executives who responded to Treasury & Risk's annual cash management survey still seem cautious about where they put their cash, with 34% citing a more restrictive investment policy and 19% saying they are making greater use of Treasury paper. On the other hand, 47% report an increase in the price they pay for cash management services in the last year, down from 54% in last year's survey. However, 17% more than last year say they plan to rebid some portion of their cash management services this year.
