Predict
Cash & Liquidity Management

 

 

Generally a bank will utilise a number of systems to comply with the regulatory requirements and Predict can be an important component in this process. Real Time updates from reconciled internal and external sources, presented in a clear, user-friendly format allowing a bank to have a clear picture of its intra day exposure.
Previously held long balances can be reduced to acceptable credit levels, short balances, an expensive alternative, can be funded at more appropriate times of the day.

Predict helps to address the six operational elements that should be included in a banks strategy for managing intraday liquidity risk. (See Appendix B for Principle 8 of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) publication Principles for Sound Liquidity Risk Management Supervision.

 
Best Practice requires:

A company-wide view of cash & liquidity

Real time or timely information

Better use of balances

Regulatory Reporting

Manage daylight overdraft restrictions and enhance control of operations costs

Reduce oversized liquidity buffers

Avoid overdraft and penalty charges

 

In order to fully utilise available funds and maximize investment opportunities, institutions need an efficient and accurate method of calculating their intra-day cash positions and projected balances.

 

Cash flows result from a multitude of sources, spanning many business lines, such as treasury, securities and payments, and nowadays the trend to consolidate operations and business processes means a greater challenge to the industry.
