Reducing investment costs and improving oversight
A privately held Australian furniture retailer with 450 employees is looking for efficient cash management within controlled risk parameters, they are also keen to reduce their investment costs. The retailer is concerned by the business’s poor cash visibility particularly the frequency and detail in reporting as well as the time and cost associated with current term deposit rate discovery. The Managing Director has requested a review of treasury management to better define reporting, compliance, liquidity and to maximise yield by moving to a cash portfolio approach.
The company treasurer might utilise FIIG’s Money Market Optimiser to outsource the management of a made to measure cash portfolio where they can direct their explicit liquidity and risk parameters, optimised for yield. Further the service would save the time and cost involved in investment research and facilitation. As a result of using Optimiser the company would lower costs, enjoy enhanced yield and the protection of greater detail in consolidated reporting and compliance.

Using FIIG’s Direct Bond Service the company can professionalise their investment management with fully transparent reporting on investment performance and the ability to diversify their investment exposure. The company would also increase returns over at call cash but retain liquidity and capital.
Professional management to improve yield
