In the September issue, Global Finance will publish its selections for the World’s Best Asset Managers For Corporates 2015.

With around $7 trillion in cash on the balance sheets of global corporates, treasury and investment managers are increasingly seeking outside help to manage their excess cash. Since the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-2009, much of the focus has been on minimizing risk and preserving capital. But increasingly, as global conditions slowly improve, companies are looking to glean some return on their portfolios.

But treasury and finance departments have become increasingly lean and often have minimal internal resources available for complex investment analysis, so investment professionals now rely more than ever on the advice and assistance of outside managers to meet the portfolio guidelines set by their Board and internal investment committees.

With these awards, we recognize those asset managers that excel at executing on discretionary mandates from nonfinancial corporations. We evaluate asset managers that provide the richest range of services and solutions geared at corporations, and how they best meet the needs of the internal investment operations of nonfinancial corporations.

Take advantage of this opportunity to participate in the review process.

It is not necessary to enter in order to win, but experience shows an entry increases the chance of success. In many cases, providers are able to present information and perspectives that may not be readily available to the editors of Global Finance.

Performance will be judged over the period covering January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014.

Global Finance will also make use of market research and obtain input from industry analysts, corporate executives and other users of asset management services.
