A press release entitled, "ICD's Transparency Plus 3.0 Revolutionizes Exposure Analytics by Expanding to Include a Wide Range of Fixed Income Investments says, "Institutional Cash Distributors (ICD) today announced the release of Transparency Plus 3.0 (T+ 3.0), its latest exposure analytics application with powerful new institutional investment features and risk management capabilities that further aggregates investment decision-control for corporate treasury."
The releases bullet points summarize, "ICD's award-winning Transparency Plus expands to include separately managed accounts (SMA's), short duration bond funds, money market funds, proprietary portfolios, bank accounts and time deposits; Transparency Plus 3.0 is the only institutional investment analytics application to load fund holding reports on a weekly basis; Transparency Plus 3.0 offers counterparty lending indicator metrics; and, Transparency Plus 3.0 expanded analytic reporting includes the T+ Comprehensive Report, T+ Universal Investment Exposure Report and T+ Money Market Fund Guideline Actual Report."
ICD's Jeff Jellison, CEO North America, comments, "This is the logical next important step for exposure analytics. Corporate treasury departments need to manage and monitor all of their investment positions in order to provide the level of risk management required in today's economic environment."
The release adds, "Key to this release is the macro view T+ 3.0 creates for investors and cash managers. The conversion of disparate financial data into usable intelligence has been a continuing focus of ICD's specialization in institutional investments and the risk management challenges that surround them.... ICD is unique in its market position and its internal capability to more rapidly capture fund holding and investment data."
Ed Baldry, ICD's CEO Europe noted, "ICD Tech has developed advanced proprietary methods for collecting, normalizing and loading investment data on a weekly basis. For products with weighted average maturity limits of as little as 60 days, weekly versus monthly fund-loading time differentials are essential for generating superior investment intelligence." Transparency Plus 3.0 streamlines the decision matrix for corporate treasury institutional investment and risk management.
Finally, ICD's Tory Hazard tells Crane Data, "We had multiple clients come to us and say they really wanted the ability to do exposure analytics across all of their short term investments, and Transparency Plus 3.0 answers that for them. They can look at any number of direct exposures, whether it's their bank accounts, CDs, Time Deposits, whatever their positions are with the direct exposure, they're able to include that. They could even break it down to the equity level."
