Now in their 19th year, the Alexander Hamilton Awards are designed to recognize companies that have taken a big leap forward in treasury, finance, or risk management through an innovative process and/or technology implementation. Winning projects establish the organization as a leader in treasury and finance, enabling the company to gain important new insights, achieve dramatic improvements in efficiency, and/or exhibit best practices.

The 2014 Alexander Hamilton Awards contest is now open for submissions. This year Treasury & Risk will be recognizing winning strategies in three categories:

  • • Cash Management & Liquidity Optimization. This category includes information reporting and activity related to the collection of incoming payments and the disbursement of outgoing payments, as well as portfolio management, short-term investing, and contingency planning for cash availability. Cash flow forecasting and centralization efforts also fall into this category.

  • • Financial Risk Management. This category includes innovative solutions for risk management involving domestic or international interest rates, foreign exchange, commodity price, or country risk; the use of derivatives; or the use of capital markets to hedge a company's financial risk exposure. Innovative approaches to assessing risk when extending credit to customers and financial counterparties would also fall into this category.

  • • Enterprise Risk Management. This category includes larger programs involving risk assessment, identification, mitigation, and/or transfer when protecting a company's business, property, supply chain, personnel, data, and/or reputation.

If your organization has successfully completed a project in any of these areas, we’d love to hear about it. Complete the Alexander Hamilton Awards entry form today.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, August 8, 2014. Winners will be announced, and will share their solutions, through a series of webcasts scheduled for early 2015.
