Investors in money market funds and other short-term cash vehicles need automated tools to help them manage risk more efficiently. Accessible and accurate information is vital to performing any type of risk analysis, yet consolidating and analyzing risk and return information across security types can be time-consuming and challenging. The SGN Short-Term Cash Management portal is a global, multi-fund trading platform that helps corporate treasurers increase efficiency in researching, analyzing and gathering relevant information to help optimize short-term investments. The portalâs risk analysis solution helps firms measure risk quickly by providing aggregate, cross-asset counterparty and credit data from multiple data providers in a single location. This helps investors view fundsâ underlying holdings by characteristics such as country, security type, credit rating or maturity structure on a consolidated basis across their entire portfolio.

By providing S&P credit ratings on underlying cash securities, SGNâs portal is now able to provide investors with Standard & Poorâs fundamentally driven, expert analysis of securitiesâ creditworthiness.â
Bob Ward, chief operating officer of SunGardâs wealth management business, said, âThe ability to assess risk and exposure quickly based on multiple data points across portfolios helps facilitate real-time decision making.
