Award Category Criteria 

Deals and Projects Summary

Treasury Systems
This is the category for you if you have recently implemented or upgraded a TMS. Tell us how you rose to the challenge, and what improvements it made to the way you manage the treasury function.

Cash Management
Cash is king, as we know, so what did you deliver that improved its management? Was it about how cash was pooled, either notionally or otherwise, or did you create greater transparency across the business, or was it more about how you improved your forecasting of cash?

Capital Raising (Bonds/Loans)
What capital did you raise and how? What was innovative about what you did, what were the challenges, and were you a first in the market in something?

Working Capital Solutions (SCF, Trade Finance, RCF)
What working capital solution have you implemented that you are particularly proud of? Was it something new and innovative in supply chain finance, was it around liquidity, or maybe you implemented something which also gave benefit to others further along in the supply chain?

Sustainability (ESG)
(can include D&I, policy/reporting framework, green investments/bonds)
ESG covers so many areas, this is a category with a lot of potential. Are we talking green finance, diversity & inclusion, or some change/improvement in governance? Tell us what you are proud of which has really made a difference.

Treasury Transformation
This category looks to pull together a variety of achievements which transformed your treasury function. Was it a restructure, a merger, or something else? The key here is significant change, within your context. 

Deals and Projects Entry Requirements
  • Corporate organisations only (not banks)
  • All sizes of deal and company will be taken into consideration
  • Nominations can be submitted directly by the corporate organisation, or their partners with their prior consent (eg. banks, system providers, legal teams)
  • Projects must have been completed within the last 12 months to qualify for consideration.

*While we will accept nominations from non-bank financial institutions the judges retain the right to determine that the nomination meets the overall objectives both of the ACT (advancing the treasury profession and treasurer career development) and also the awards and judging criteria.

Please note: Details around the fees will be looked at loosely as part of the judging process, so please include as much information as you are able to. This will be used for the purposes of judging only and treated as confidential. For any pricing examples, please add the USD equivalent.

Teams and Professional Entry Criteria

Team of the Year
This award is for a team of any size. Tell us about what you have achieved over the last year, whether in terms of team-building, deals entered into, systems changes etc. We want to hear about everything you have been doing, and why your team is the best in the Middle East region.

The Treasury Professional of the Year will have impressed you with their ability to either lead a team or influence from the ground up. They will have led on important change initiatives in their organization and will have demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and integrity throughout.

Future Leader in Treasury (FLIT) 
They could come from any background, buy or sell side, but the key criteria will be around how they have positively influenced the profession so far, and what potential they show in terms of influencing the future.
