We specialise in the management of surplus cash for institutions, on a discretionary and advisory basis. Our Institutional platform works with some of the UK’s largest building societies, universities, charities and friendly societies.
We focus on client specific investment solutions to meet specific client objectives based on risk appetite, expected cash flows and investment restrictions. From this we can create a varied portfolio, using a wide-range of assets that can be easily realised to ensure maximum liquidity whilst seeking the highest appropriate yield.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Management of cash in any business is vital, especially if it is cash that you may need at short notice. But managing cash can be complicated and it is certainly not risk free. Interest rate, foreign exchange and counterparty risk are only some of the factors to contend with. Balancing those risks with generating enhanced returns takes experience and focus, and simply leaving money on deposit, or buying a liquidity fund, may not be the best thing for your business.
We see managing liquidity as a service not a product and want to understand what it is that you need your cash for. What expected and potential cash outflows do you have? We then design a liquidity management strategy that matches these liabilities with suitable assets. To do that properly means working in partnership with you.
We understand that circumstances can change, and that your strategy needs to be able to adapt to both business and market dynamics. We welcome your involvement and can develop a close advisory relationship. Or, if you prefer us to get on with it, we can agree on investment parameters for a discretionary service that gives you clear communication and the confidence that your cash is in safe hands.
