Hazeltree boosts liquidity network
Buy-side treasury management solutions provider Hazeltree has added Federated Investors to its network to provide liquidity services for funds with excess cash.

This partnership provides mutual clients an efficient way to manage and sweep cash to Federated Investors money market funds.

Hazeltree provides an interface to sweep excess cash to a wide range of liquidity products through its partner network.

Federated Investors offer money market funds a range of short-duration options managed to deliver enhanced yield potential.

This partnership provides a straight-through process between buy-side firms and Investor Federated funds.

“Federated’s commitment to providing our clients a superior set of options for allocating and managing cash is exemplified by our new partnership with Hazeltree,” said Brian Ronayne, Federated’s senior vice president and national sales manager for capital markets and institutional cash.

Sameer Shalaby, president and CEO of Hazeltree, commented: “With the continued focus on cash and liquidity management by our clients globally, Hazeltree is uniquely positioned to deliver an efficient way to aggregate and manage cross-counterparty cash accounts and sweep unencumbered free cash to money market funds.”

“We welcome Federated to our well-established partner network and look forward to collaborating with them to provide our mutual clients with automated access to their liquidity products.”
