When the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) surveyed corporate finance professionals in 2011, 81 percent of respondents said the treasury function’s role had become more strategic over the past five years. That trend shows no sign of abating. In the “2014 AFP Strategic Role of Treasury” survey report, released today by the AFP and Oliver Wyman, 84 percent said treasury’s role has expanded again.
