BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has added to its arsenal of risk and collateral management-related services with the introduction of the Liquidity Aggregator, available through the company’s Liquidity DIRECT(SM) portal. “As Markets expand globally, the need to analyze and quantify your portfolio return and liquidity risk is paramount. The Liquidity Aggregator offers clients a deeper view of exposure and risk, which is essential to managing their investments,” said Kurt Woetzel, CEO of BNY Mellon’s Global Collateral Services (GCS) business.
“Nearly all financial transactions and commitments have liquidity implications,” said Jonathan Spirgel, EVP and head of GCS sales and relationship management at BNY Mellon. “To be highly effective, liquidity risk management requires insights, tools, products and services that support a client’s ability to both maximize liquidity and analyze investment exposure.”
The Liquidity Aggregator, a companion to BNY Mellon’s Liquidity DIRECT(SM) solution, was created to help clients gain a new level of insight into their investments, across all across all US and Non-US Domiciled Funds in their portfolios. The system is designed to help clients actively monitor and help to control liquidity risk exposures and manage funding needs, taking into account security types; country and region of exposure; country and region of risk; weighted average yields and maturities. Clients can leverage the new dashboard across their entire investment portfolio to view:
Exposure across all funds with positions;
Money market mutual fund full holdings in a single place;
Largest holdings in the portfolio by security type and issuer across multiple funds,
with the ability to determine shared securities; and
Trends and reporting for month-end and at 6-month intervals for money market mutual funds daily yields, WAM and holdings.
These sophisticated liquidity tools are the latest innovation and a key component of BNY Mellon’s Collateral Universe(SM), the company’s suite of second generation collateral management capabilities and solutions, designed to help buy-side clients manage the impact of marketplace and regulatory change on their investment procenvestment processes.
