A large portion of corporate treasuries now execute short-term investments, such as money funds and commercial paper, online.

According to a recent SunGard survey of 164 corporations, 60% use online portals to invest in money-market funds, commercial paper, and other short-term options, in line with the 61% that said they traded online in SunGard’s 2013 survey. That’s up from the 43% that did so in 2012 and 37% in 2011.

The adoption of online execution was initially driven by customers’ desire for “the automation and efficiency of straight-through processing into their treasury workstation,” said Vince Tolve, vice president and global head of sales for SunGard’s global trading business. But over the past few years, as companies faced the financial crisis, the recession, and the European debt crisis, treasurers have also been interested in using online platforms to assess the risk of their trading partners, Tolve said.
