Webinar: Managing Liquidity in a Crisis
A popular tool among institutional investors, MMFs are a somewhat overlooked option among corporate treasurers for storing cash. They allow for quick access to funds while still preserving returns; providing a low-risk method for corporate treasurers to park cash while rates remain low.
MMFs offer flexibility to access and deploy cash quickly during a liquidity event.
Although viewed negatively in March and April when market stresses were at their height, MMFs largely delivered on their main objectives of capital preservation and liquidity whilst providing same-day access to cash for their investors.
- How will MMFs deliver yield in an era of seemingly endless 'lower for longer' interest rates?
- Will the convergence of yield between prime liquidity funds and ESG-related funds continue after recovery?
- In what conditions should treasurers balance their risk-return objectives, given cash management is set to take a more central role in organizations’ core strategies as they typically balance, increased debt positions with lower cash yields and creased revenue drivers?
Please sign up here to join us on the day at 10:30am Singapore / Hong Kong time.
The webinar will convene experienced treasurers and product experts to share their views on past performance of MMFs during the crisis, how to assess risk when investing in specialised asset classes such as MMFs, how best to structure cash investment programs, and case studies in cash management. We will also look to the future to consider balancing preservation and yield objectives in a low rate environment, as well as ESG and sustainability-linked cash funds.
