Survey Research & Economic Data
2019 AFP Liquidity Survey
Underwritten by State Street Global Advisors (SSGA)
A vast majority of survey respondents, 93 percent, consider the overall relationship with their banks a determinant when deciding where to place their organizations’ cash and short-term investments. Sixty-eight percent of respondents indicate that the credit quality of a bank is also a deciding factor when determining where to invest. Smaller, privately held organizations rely more on their banks than other companies do.
Over a year after enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), 57 percent of survey respondents continue to be uncertain about some of its provisions and anticipate spending at their companies will be unchanged, up from last year’s 40 percent.
Fixed or floating net assets value (NAV) continues to be the primary reason for choosing a money fund at 56 percent, with yield ranking coming in second at 40 percent. 38 percent chose fund ratings.
AFP thanks State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) for its underwriting support of the 2019 AFP Liquidity Survey.
