“Our clients are asking for a robust treasury management solution. We believe that Hazeltree offers an industry leading suite of treasury management solutions.” said Jim Kelly, HedgeServ’s Chairman. “We are already receiving positive feedback from our clients about the value of our combined service offering. We are delighted to be working with the Hazeltree team,” added Kelly.
“Given the increased regulations in our industry, clients have been focusing on moving away from managing their treasury function on spreadsheets to deploying a more robust technology platform,” said Sameer Shalaby, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hazeltree. “We are delighted to be working with HedgeServ and its innovative client-focused team to deliver a combined treasury management solution to our combined customers,” added Shalaby.
Hazeltree’s cash management solution aggregates custodian, OTC, money market and prime broker balances onto one powerful set of dashboards, offering HedgeServ’s clients a streamlined process to optimize their cash balances.

Hazeltree leverages industry-standard SWIFT messaging as well as secure file transfer protocols for wires and securities movements. Hazeltree’s collateral management solution offers HedgeServ clients the ability to track their OTC collateral across their counterparties to better understand if they are over- or under-collateralized so they can take appropriate action by issuing or responding to margin calls.
