LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2012) - Companies are holding back by failing to make the most of all available funds, World Finance has deduced as it announces the Treasury Management Awards 2012.
Recently, the market trend has been for major companies to deliver large dividend pay outs to shareholders. While this might satisfy investors, such payments are often a sign that a company is simply unsure of how to effectively utilise its available funds at a time of economic diversity. Releasing finances this way does little to bolster the strength of the company, limiting its ability to generate greater finances.
Treasury management is the act of locating and investing a company's wealth or debt to generate a return that can then be fed back into the company. For banks it often forms a key part of its profit-making operations. Though other companies may not have the luxury of spare cash, there are various techniques that effective treasury management can benefit from in order to identify potential assets, and use them to increase a company's returns.
For a forward-thinking business, treasury management forms a vital part of operations for maximising profits. At a time when commercial opportunities can occur suddenly and require funds quickly, effective treasury management can provide businesses with the necessary extra finance to have the edge over the competition, whose funds could be tied to illiquid assets.
A very important area of investment, World Finance celebrates the companies that demonstrate excellence in this field. The Treasury Management Awards 2012 offer praise to those who, through clear and precise finances, provide an edge over many rivals, and demonstrate opportunistic approach to business.
