Company Press Release
NEW YORK, Nov 09, 2011 -- DB Advisors, Deutsche Bank's institutional asset management business, today unveiled the latest in a series of pioneering enhancements to its money market reporting capabilities at the Association of Financial Professionals Annual Conference in Boston. Supplementing existing analyses of fund composition and risk metrics, the new reporting capabilities include duration contribution by country, support providers for variable rate demand notes and other features.
Increasingly, corporate treasurers have come to rely on their fund providers for clear and insightful analysis of their liquidity assets. With this in mind, DB Advisors has embarked on a series of industry-leading reporting enhancements aimed at helping clients actively manage their investment needs. Reports are generated on a weekly basis, but can be produced daily, if market conditions require.
The new reports show information such as country and industry concentration, and go well beyond. For example, duration contribution of holdings by country and sector, and a breakdown of exposure to the Eurozone sovereign and banking sectors, offer useful insights. DB Advisors' reporting also includes highly detailed security-specific information, including asset-backed commercial paper sponsors, credit and liquidity support and variable rate demand obligation support.
"This level of analysis sets a new high water mark for the industry. It allows corporate treasurers and other clients to make informed decisions about their liquidity positions without having to sift through hordes of data," said Joe Sarbinowski, Head of Global Liquidity Management at DB Advisors. "Innovative use of technology has allowed us to bring to our clients the clearest, most comprehensive information available. We believe the scope of risk metrics we provide is unmatched in the industry."
The enhanced reporting is in use for all money market fund portfolios managed by DB Advisors. Reports are generated for US prime, treasury, government, and tax-exempt portfolios, and offshore USD, GBP, and EUR portfolios.
