Barclays and Planixs are collaborating in the creation of an improved global intraday liquidity and funding capability. The latest module has gone live and is providing more timely data and enhanced visibility of intraday positions across Barclays’ key locations.
Barclays is using Realiti® across its global operations to: perform intraday liquidity management; optimise funding and forecasting activities, and deliver regulatory compliance with the Basel committee’s BCBS248 intraday monitoring regime.
Commenting on the continued engagement with Planixs, Helmut Mannhardt, Barclays’ Global Head of Funding & Liquidity Management, said “The global nature of the Barclays business means we need to have a holistic view of our intraday activities across many currencies, time zones and legal entities with the ability to measure, project and control the full spectrum of intraday liquidity risk. We are pleased to have implemented the latest release of Realiti® and with the impact it will have on our business and look forward to working with Planixs to introduce enhanced capabilities into our business. We will use Realiti® to support the evolving BCBS248 regulations and deliver significant benefits across our funding, cash and liquidity management functions”.
“After Barclays conducted a rigorous evaluation exercise, we are extremely pleased to be continuing to develop with Barclays and implement a global solution for their liquidity, intraday monitoring and regulatory reporting requirements,” said Neville Roberts, CEO of Planixs. “Barclays requires a robust solution that will consume significant volumes of data in real-time while delivering intraday insight across the business. With deployments ranging from the largest global banks through to smaller firms, Planixs offers an Intraday Liquidity solution for all financial institutions”.
