The Irish Association of Corporate Treasurers (IACT) is delighted to launch its
IACT Treasury Achievement Award
This award will recognise projects or initiatives led by Irish Treasurers that advance the development of treasury and inspire treasury professionals to excel. Projects with implementation period between the beginning of 2020 and April 2021 are eligible to enter and they will be judged on the following criteria:
• Innovation - Do new things or do classic things in a new way
• Reach - The project could be implemented in many geographies / sectors
• Environment, Sustainability, Governance - Contribute to make the world a better place
• Excellence - Aim at high standards
• Economics - Achieve monetary benefits, risk-adjusted
• Inspiring - The “wow” factor
Deadline for entry has been extended to 15 April 2021 and the winning entry will be announced in May 2021, with the award presented during our annual IACT Dinner.
The IACT Treasury Achievement Award winner will be put forward as the Irish entrant for the
European Association of Corporate Treasurers (EACT) Award
Each EACT member association nominates an entrant and from these an independent jury will select 5 finalists and Treasurers across Europe will vote to choose the overall winner to be presented during the EACT Summit in June 2021. Should the IACT Award entrant be shortlisted, expenses for attendance at the Summit will be met by IACT/ EACT.
In 2020, ESB was one of the 5 EACT Award finalists for their Green Bond issuance with the award ultimately going to JTI (Switzerland) for its use of data science for cash flow forecasting.
We are looking forward to receiving inspiring applications from IACT members.
