Now in their 19th year, the Alexander Hamilton Awards are designed to recognize companies that have taken a big leap forward in treasury, finance, or risk management through an innovative process and/or technology implementation. This year the awards will recognize winning strategies in three categories:
- Cash Management & Liquidity Optimization. This category includes information reporting and other activities related to the collection of incoming payments and the disbursement of outgoing payments, as well as portfolio management, short-term investing, and contingency planning for cash availability. Cash flow forecasting and centralization efforts also fall into this category.
- Financial Risk Management. This category includes innovative solutions for risk management involving domestic or international interest rates, foreign exchange, commodity price, or country risk; the use of derivatives; or the use of capital markets to hedge a company's financial risk exposure. Innovative approaches to assessing risk when extending credit to customers and financial counterparties would also fall into this category.
- Enterprise Risk Management. This category includes larger programs involving risk assessment, identification, mitigation, and/or transfer when protecting a company's business, property, supply chain, personnel, data, and/or reputation.
Successful entries will describe an innovative project in one of these areas and will explain how that project establishes the organization as a leader in treasury and finance, enabling the company to gain important new insights, achieve dramatic improvements in efficiency, and/or exhibit best practices.
The deadline for entry in the 2014 Alexander Hamilton Awards is Friday, August 8, 2014.
