Paul Clohesy's specialisms
Bespoke Cash arrangements and cash pooling
We manage the bespoke cash arrangements and cash pooling arrangements for clients with balances of over $50m to maximise the yield but also to provide diversification, while still maintaining sufficient liquidity to meet anticipated requirements. The banks used are selected for their size, credit rating and service capability. Treasury is able to move deposits quickly between banks in response to changes in interest rates, obtaining better returns, but still retaining access. The interest rates are in most cases higher than those quoted by the banks due to a combination of our global business’s collective purchasing power and the “new money” rates currently on offer.
Investment manager selection
We carry out both quantitative and qualitative screening to identify suitable “best of breed” investment managers for the identified investment strategies. The process involves the following:
- Establish investment objectives and risk / return profiles
- Match objectives with appropriate investment strategy
- Investment manager selection
- Regular review
As part of our quantitative analysis of investment managers we draw on leading financial software solutions to assist with decision making and analysis.
Foreign Exchange, currency & interest rate hedging
Our foreign exchange facility utilises market leading solutions such as Bloomberg to monitor currency trading. In addition we have negotiated preferential dealing capabilities with many leading financial institutions.
