BNY Mellon, Hazeltree Partner on Cash Management09.28.2017
Global custodian BNY Mellon and treasury management vendor Hazeltree have jointly rolled out an independent platform that streamlines cash management for buy-side and corporate firms.
The initiative delivers BNY Mellon’s full suite of cash, treasury and custody services through Hazeltree’s advanced treasury management technology.
The strategic relationship not only provides BNY Mellon clients with full transparency across their portfolio, regardless of where their money is held, but optimizes cash investment, streamlines FX hedging, and drives increased efficiency. By linking participants with BNY Mellon’s award-winning Liquidity DIRECT solution, clients can also take advantage of an array of investment vehicles.
In a collateral management study released in June, BNY Mellon found that over 60% of firms are developing enterprise-level functions to optimize the sourcing of collateral, funding and liquidity. The new platform addresses this industry need.
“At a time of increasingly complex global markets, this integrated platform can make the treasury function a lot more efficient,” said Jonathan Spirgel, Head of Global Liquidity Services, BNY Mellon Markets. “It enhances performance, while ensuring that participants maintain the level of security and liquidity of their assets they rightly expect from BNY Mellon.”
“Many firms are missing opportunities to optimize their cash usage due to manual and incomplete processes,” said Sameer Shalaby, President and CEO of Hazeltree. “Our new platform increases transparency into their holdings, minimizes frictional costs and reduces operational risk.”
The initiative is being rolled out in phases to select BNY Mellon clients that will be provided access to both the Hazeltree technology platform and the existing BNY Mellon infrastructure, including efficient payment processing via SWIFT.
