Cash is King: Treasury values surge to $256B in 2022
The value of treasury transactions across the Citco group of companies’ (Citco) client base surged by almost 50% last year amid a near-unrecognizable interest rate environment. Soaring inflation has sparked rapid rate hikes around the globe and transformed cash back into an asset class that can generate returns, with treasury management becoming increasingly important for alternative investment managers as a result.
Many are now managing cash much more tightly in the hunt for the best rates possible, and across Citco’s client base, data from Citco’s Middle Office Solutions team shows the value of treasury transactions soared by 45% overall, to $256B in 2022.
Citco’s Middle Office Solutions team has compiled data on overall trade volumes, values and collateral calls for 2022. Data on payments volumes and collateral moves are constituted by all dispatched payments including Letter of Acceptances. All data is drawn from clients using our proprietary systems, Æxeo® Collateral and Æxeo® Treasury.
