New Hazeltree Paper Reveals Benefits of Active Treasury Management

Case studies demonstrate 65 basis point performance uplift achievable using approach

New York, London and Hong Kong, November 15, 2018 – Hazeltree, the leading provider of integrated buy-side treasury management solutions, today released a paper detailing how active treasury management could yield as much as 65 basis points of incremental alpha for asset managers.

The paper, “The Value of Active Treasury Management,” which was developed in conjunction with BNY Mellon, lays out four steps investment managers can take to actively manage the treasury function and realize benefits for their portfolio.

These benefits include reduced counterparty exposure, improved operational efficiencies and the creation of incremental alpha.

The performance advantages of active management are demonstrated in a pair of in-depth case studies detailing how asset managers can use active treasury management to deliver quantifiable value to their funds.

The two studies, which are based on Hazeltree client experiences, found that asset managers could realize a treasury performance uplift of between 24 and 65 basis points if the methods outlined in the paper were utilized.

“Based on a survey across clients, we have seen a clear focus by larger asset managers to control and optimize their treasury and portfolio finance relationships, resulting in reduced costs and increased performance, while managing counterparty exposure,” said Sameer Shalaby, President and CEO of Hazeltree. “There are opportunities for asset managers, of all sizes, to benefit from actively managing treasury operations.”
