Citi has launched TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager, described as a tool designed to make it easier for clients to manage their global liquidity through web-based customisable views of their pooling structures and cash balances within the pools.
Via a dashboard, Citi’s TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager provides the bank’s clients with summary, detailed, and graphical views of their balances across multi- and single-currency notional pooling as well as of global cash concentration structures. Additionally, alerting capabilities keep users updated on exposures, while details of a liquidity structure can be examined in a tree diagram or back-dropped against a global map.
“While many of Citi’s clients have treasury management systems [TMS], a substantial proportion seeks more timely and interactive data than is available within traditional systems,” said Elyse Weiner, global head of Citi Liquidity Management Services.
“TreasuryVision already provides direct support for cash flow forecasting and cash positioning. Now, with this introduction of TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager, clients can access additional support tools for analysis and decision-making that complement our leading global pooling capabilities.”
Citi has also seen strong growth in liquidity solutions across many facets, including:
- By currency: offshore renminbi (RMB) in notional pools.
- By global pooling centre: addition of new notional pooling hub in Amsterdam.
- By number of client multi-currency notional pooling structures: more than doubled over three years.
