Treasury, Risk, Cash and Debt Management
INFACT Consulting’s core activities relate to independent consulting to treasury, cash management and risk functions within banks, corporations and sovereign government treasuries.
We utilise a business case methodology.
Our extensive experience in this area allows our customers to re-engineer their business policies, processes and select the appropriate applications for the complexity of their requirements
We have helped to deliver solutions to ensure sound integrated treasury strategy where cash management, payments and risk management together with integration with accounting are all achieved
Machine learning, artificial intelligence and data have become a focus area.
From our experience have a developed a number of tools, resources and skills, which allow us to carry out market scans quickly and efficiently. These include:
- Business trends
- Database of available applications, including comparative capabilities and strengths and weakness.
- Database of specialist components that may be considered to support a primary system.
- Alternative solution architecture approaches.
- Benchmark of typical capabilities or various levels applications
- A Total Cost of Ownership Model.
- Internal studies of trends in the market requirements and vendor offerings, both locally and internationally. This allows us to undertake tailored market studies
In each of the above areas we have:
A comprehensive methodology that includes database of systems, best practice model set of processes and system requirements together with comprehensive procurement and system assessment tools. This allows us to deliver projects on time and within budget. We have experience with most industry standard project management approaches.
Within this methodology we have a total cost of ownership model that addresses current state/do nothing and future state/replacement/enhancement strategies. This includes savings from reduction in FTE and systems operating expense and revenue improvements from functionality enhancement. We generally use this model to create business cases that compare maintaining the current state environment versus potential future state environments.
INFACT Consulting is completely independent of any vendor although through our extensive experience we have a database of systems and vendors with detailed information of current releases and capabilities to suit the situation.
We always maintain a high degree of probity to allow clear audit ability of projects.
One of the key areas that separate us from the rest is that we undertake assignments for both the buy and sell sides of the financial markets. This gives us a deeper understanding of how these markets operate.
For example in the government securities market we have assisted government treasuries, debt managers and banks that trade in securities but also those institutions that invest in them. Being able to see both sides of these financial markets allows INFACT Consulting a competitive edge when assisting your organisation to be one step ahead of the competition. Throughout our two decades of operating within these environments INFACT Consulting can help your organisation pierce the cloud of uncertainty.
