Last week, we listened in on two webinars that addressed the difficulties corporate and money market investors are having in this overly oppressive regulatory and rate environment. GT News, a publication of the Association of Financial Professionals, hosted a free webinar with experts from SSgA offering their insights on cash management strategies. The webinar, "Cash Management in 2015 -- A Trinity of Challenges," was sponsored by SSgA and featured Yeng Butler, Head, US Cash Management as moderator, along with SSgA's Steven Meier, CIO-Global Fixed Income, Cash and Currency, and Tom Connelley, Head, Short Duration Solutions. "In the years since the global financial crisis we have seen sweeping changes in the operating environment for cash," said Butler. "Going into 2015, cash investors are faced with what we refer to as a trinity of challenges -- first, new landmark regulatory reforms, second, historically low interest rates, and finally, a shortage of high quality short-term securities in the market."
