Cash Index

Less than 10% of UK Corporates have Real-Time Visibility of their Cash Flows.

Complex banking relationships and reliance on inadequate multi-bank systems hinder real-time view of operational liquidity.

For the survey – The Cashfac EMEA Operational Cash Index – Cashfac sponsored research firm East & Partners to interview 350 chief financial officers and corporate treasurers to create a unique snapshot on the true state of play for the treasuries of major organisations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The report highlights issues around clarity on cash positions and the realities of the complexities associated with managing multi-bank systems for large corporate treasuries in the region, and found high levels of frustration with the set-up process, on-boarding and account opening as well as the suitability of solutions to meet the company’s specific industry needs.

Key findings from the report include:

  • Only 9.1 percent of UK corporates have a 360 degree, real time view of their cash balances, with only 8.3 percent being able to forecast cash flow in real time.
  • EMEA corporates sustain as many as 17 bank relationships; many more than in other regions such as Asia.
  • There is a powerful need for treasurers across the EMEA region to lower the contingent risk for their organisations in not having accurate real time cash management in place.
  • UK corporates report having greater control over transactions across time zones and multiple banks relative to their EMEA peers.
  • Corporates feel that bank understanding of their businesses and the industries they work in needs to be improved.
