Hazeltree Introduces Integrated Cash Management and Sweep Platform – Hazeltree LiquidityWeb™
Integrated cash management and sweep solution enables Senrigan Capital to streamline connectivity to Goldman Sachs Asset Management with goal of seeking to mitigate counterparty risk and maximize liquidity
New York, London and Hong Kong, September 13, 2016 – Hazeltree, the leading provider of integrated buy-side treasury management technology solutions, today announced the launch of Hazeltree LiquidityWeb™, an integrated cash management and sweep technology platform. This next-generation platform provides a straight-through-process between buy-side firms and their preferred liquidity providers with the goal of seeking to maximize liquidity, increase yield and mitigate counterparty risk in an increasingly regulated environment.
“Senrigan has been leveraging Hazeltree’s fully integrated treasury solution to manage its cash, collateral and margin needs,” said Chris Nash, Chief Operating Officer of Senrigan Capital. “By adding Hazeltree LiquidityWeb, we replaced a multi-step end-of-day process of moving cash and subscribing to or redeeming from Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s family of money market funds with one secure and automated function,” added Nash.
“As a consequence of a tightening regulatory environment, banks are urging hedge funds and other buy-side firms to move cash balances away from their prime broker accounts. Hazeltree LiquidityWeb enables our clients to respond to these new challenges in an efficient manner that both captures unrealized alpha from operations and reduces cost,” said Sameer Shalaby, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hazeltree.
Instead of manual cash transfers with each counterparty, typically the most common practice today, Hazeltree LiquidityWeb provides secure, automated, rules-based “sweep” access to a wide range of liquidity solutions through Hazeltree’s expanding partner network, including Hazeltree’s first strategic partner, Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM). The solutions are managed by seeking to provide daily liquidity while preserving capital and maximizing yield.
Hazeltree LiquidityWeb is offered as a standalone solution or integrated into Hazeltree’s award-winning treasury management platform.
