Ongoing Quantitative Analysis

We seek to ensure primary dimensions of risk (key rates, sector, issuer/securities) are consistent across each strategy.

Solving For Unique Liquidity Objectives

Our clients have both routine and unpredictable cash flows; we can design a portfolio based on their specific liquidity objectives.

We seek to balance client yield objectives with risk tolerances, while considering operating, reserve, and strategic cash needs.

 

Operating Cash

  • Short-term operating expenses
  • Zero tolerance for loss and interest rate risk
  • Easy access (same-day settlement)

Reserve Cash

  • For intermediate-term obligations & unexpected expenses
  • Low risk tolerance, sensitive to realized gains and losses
  • Access to majority of cash with timely settlement

Strategic Cash

  • Intermediate-term obligations
  • Moderate risk tolerance, with emphasis on higher
    yielding securities
  • Access to cash determined by client liquidity needs
