NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amid a challenging environment for corporate treasurers, Fitch Ratings has produced a video interview featuring Anthony Carfang, founding partner of Treasury Strategies, covering specific strategies for finance professionals to effectively manage liquidity and deploy cash.
Effectively investing cash holdings is a chief concern among corporate treasurers, particularly in this market of record cash balances among U.S. corporates. They continue to face a shrinking universe of investment options, low interest rates and yields, regulatory uncertainty and the risk of forced selling.
The interview was conducted by Roger Merritt, Managing Director and global head of Fitch's Fund and Asset Management group. In the video, Mr. Carfang discusses why corporate treasurers should review their investment policies annually to adapt to rapidly changing markets and avoid missed investment opportunities. He also recommends that corporate treasurers take a strategic, pro-active approach to their short-term investments, such as accessing a wider range of credit opinions, research and commentary.

The video follows the publication of a Fitch white paper 'Stale Investment Guidelines Lead to Missed Opportunities,' also available on Fitch's Corporate Treasury and Cash Management research page covering a broad range of topics such as money funds, repos, commercial paper, counterparty risk, and other relevant topics.
