Australian risk management firm Oakvale Capital and SunGard Treasury Systems have teamed to deliver treasury risk management systems to Australian businesses online. The alliance, which joins SunGard’s Quantum treasury system with Oakvale’s treasury advisory services, provides a treasury management program that equips companies with the advantages of the largest treasuries at a fraction of the cost. Clients can reduce up-front hardware and software costs and gain access to treasury advice and support that is often cost prohibitive to maintain internally. Under the agreement, Oakvale will use the alliance to provide small- to medium-sized businesses with a fully supported online system for treasury management.
