Hazeltree Partners with HSBC Global Asset Management to Automate Cash Sweeps

Hazeltree LiquidityWeb™ adds access to HSBC Global Asset Management funds to provide buy-side institutions with more cash investment solutions

New York, London and Hong Kong, October 18, 2016 – Hazeltree, the leading provider of integrated buy-side treasury management solutions, today announced the addition of HSBC Global Asset Management to the expanding partner network of Hazeltree LiquidityWeb™, an integrated cash management and sweep platform. This partnership provides mutual clients an efficient way to manage cash and sweep unencumbered free cash to HSBC Global Asset Management money market funds, providing exposure to diversified portfolios of high quality liquid assets with competitive yields. Hazeltree’s partnership with HSBC comes at a time when buy-side clients continue to be challenged by global regulatory changes and the implications they have on traditional deposit taking activity.

This partnership with Hazeltree provides a straight-through-process between buy-side firms and HSBC Global Asset Management money market funds to provide liquid and diversified opportunities, while offering yields in line with short-term money markets.

“Today’s global trading environment demands a clear focus on effective cash management by integrating intelligent sweeps to preserve cash and provide effective yields.  Hazeltree LiquidityWeb offers a streamlined way to manage those treasury activities,” said Sameer Shalaby, CEO of Hazeltree. “We welcome HSBC Global Asset Management to our expanding partner network and look forward to collaborating with them to provide our mutual clients access to their unique variety of liquidity products.”

Hazeltree LiquidityWeb provides an efficient secure interface to sweep excess cash to a range of liquidity products from several of the world’s leading financial institutions, now including HSBC Global Asset Management. With a single click, clients can subscribe, wire money to fund their purchase, and post their transaction to their internal general ledger.
