Hazeltree Securities Finance version 7 empowers market participants with comprehensive data and workflows
Hazeltree Securities Finance™ Version 7 is a comprehensive portfolio finance solution integrated with new market color, benchmark and intra-day rates, and utilization trends. It enables hedge funds, asset managers and beneficial owners to:

  • identify and monitor treasury market inefficiencies and opportunities, 
  • obtain demonstrable best-execution financing rates, 
  • attribute and record financing accruals on a portfolio or strategy basis, and
  • efficiently transfer securities with OneClick between prime brokers, custodians and banks. 

Industry participants benefit from daily and intra-day market rates and prices as well as intra-day activity displaying recalls and new borrows. Hazeltree provides trends on over 44,000 global securities, and 20,000 underlying lending funds with availability in excess of $15 trillion and over $2.5 trillion in outstanding transactions, alongside five years of historical data.  

All data points are tightly integrated and arranged in a single view to enhance overall transparency and rate discovery, resulting in improved investment decisions.

Expanded optimization algorithms coverage
Hazeltree continues to expand its coverage of optimization algorithms.
Hazeltree Optimizer now utilizes multi-objective algorithms to suggest and automate cash movements to minimize cost, rebalance accounts, manage FX exposures, and increase cash equivalent investments across accounts globally.

Clients, with hundreds of bank accounts and counterparties in different currencies, have shown to benefit from this level of automation to improve their efficiencies by 35% around cash management, while identifying incremental yield opportunities that have added 50-70bps to their excess cash.

Hazeltree Optimizer automates collateral management workflows to streamline the posting of margin requirements that fit within certain thresholds, freeing up resources to focus on disputing excess margin requirements and recalling over-collateralized margin.

In partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Hazeltree Cloud offers a highly scalable infrastructure that includes the latest security tools and various levels of compliance certifications. The platform features multi-regional redundancy, disaster recovery, standard UAT environment and streamlined support/implementation.
