Alexander Hamilton Awards

Now in their 25th year, the Alexander Hamilton Awards from Treasury & Risk recognize companies taking big leaps forward in treasury, finance, and/or risk management through process innovations and technology implementations.


2020 was a year unlike any other, yet treasury organizations found many ways to innovate. In fact, the pressures that the Covid-19 crisis exerted on corporate liquidity, debt covenants, the supply chain, and other areas of business and financial management drove many treasury groups to explore solutions they might not have considered in a more typical business climate.

That is the story of the 2021 Alexander Hamilton Awards.

Treasury & Risk is now presenting the 2021 awards via a series of articles and webcasts. We have already presented three categories, with the fourth coming on June 2, 2021. So far, we have presented awards in:


Treasury Transformation


Technology Excellence


Working Capital Management: Partner Impact


Additional Treasury & Risk webcasts and articles over the course of 2021 will celebrate innovative initiatives in four additional categories, plus an Overall Excellence Award winner. (Note that winners in each category that has not yet been presented are listed alphabetically. Treasury & Risk will announce the “color” of award that each organization has won when presenting the awards in that category.)
