As global financial markets endure further rounds of turmoil, corporate treasuries continue to hone their strategies for short-term investing, while showing greater uncertainty over investing in U.S. Treasuries. Almost a quarter of the financial executives who responded to Treasury & Risk’s 2011 Cash Management Survey, sponsored by SAP, say they put in place a more restrictive investment policy, less than the 34% that did so last year, but still a large portion. While 12% say they increased their use of Treasury paper, down from 19% last year, 8% say they are investing less in Treasuries, an option that no companies cited last year, and 11% say they’re making more use of CDs, up from 5% in 2010. On the technology front, 49% say they would give more cash management business to a bank that linked to their company’s ERP system.
