2020 AFP Liquidity Survey


Underwritten by Invesco


The share of companies holding their short-term investments in banks increased slightly to 51 percent. The overall relationship with a banking partner is the main driver in bank selection. Safety continues to be the most-valued short-term investment objective for 62 percent of organizations. ESG has not caught on in operating cash: only 18 percent of respondents consider ESG investment parameters when managing operating cash.

AFP thanks Invesco for its underwriting support of the 2020 AFP Liquidity Survey.
