We are entering a new era of trading and investment risk management
Basel III regulations and SEC reforms are transforming the roles and rules of liquidity for banks. This is impacting the availability of numerous short-term products and the types of assets traditionally offered by banks and relied on by institutional investors. Now that the Fed has returned to short-term rates, the objectives and strategies of liquidity portfolio are making profound advancements. In fact, tightening SEC regulatory mandates are encouraging greater portfolio diversity. Treasury Departments are implementing advanced trading and risk management technologies for building and managing more sophisticated cash portfolios.
