Cash Management Poll has merged with the Euromoney Cash Management Poll to form one poll using just one questionnaire. This single questionnaire will produce results for both Asiamoney and Euromoney and these results are published separately. The categories and mechanics of the poll follows those of previous year.

The poll is located here and divided into the Financial Institution (FI) questionnaire and the Non-financial (Corporates) questionnaire. Banks, asset/fund management firms, insurance firms, pension/trust fund companies, securities firms/brokers, government-affiliated financial entities etc. should do the FI questionnaire.

The Asiamoney award categories are:
