The Association for Financial Professionals, a group representing corporate treasurers, published its "2024 AFP Liquidity Survey" last week. (See AFP's press release.) The cover letter says, "Invesco is proud to once again partner with the Association of Financial Professionals (AFP) to sponsor the 19th annual AFP Liquidity Survey Report. This marks the fifth year that Invesco has sponsored this industry-leading exploration into current and emerging corporate cash management trends." Invesco's Laurie Brignac explains, "The cash management landscape has certainly evolved over the five years that Invesco has sponsored this report. Treasury professionals have adapted to multiple challenges during those five years including zero rates, banking challenges, Covid disruptions, geopolitical events, elevated inflation, and the highest rates in decades. A key theme that emerged in this year's report is the elevated levels of cash balances across most organizations, and expectations that this will continue to be the case."
