Institutional Cash Distributors (ICD) has released Transparency Plus 3.0 (T+ 3.0), its exposure analytics application with new institutional investment features and risk management capabilities that further aggregates investment decision-control for corporate treasury.
“This is the logical next important step for exposure analytics,” said ICD’s Jeff Jellison, chief executive officer (CEO) North America. “Corporate treasury departments need to manage and monitor all of their investment positions in order to provide the level of risk management required in today’s economic environment.”
