Deutsche Bank calls for industry collaboration on real-time liquidity management framework

Deutsche Bank’s new white paper explores the potential creation of a new real-time liquidity framework, citing industry-wide collaboration as essential to success

Banks and corporates alike stand to benefit from real-time liquidity management functionality, but, industry-wide collaboration will be crucial to ensure effective implementation, according to a new Deutsche Bank’s white paper entitled “Preparing for real-time liquidity”.

The paper – which includes insight from Sandra Laielli, Chair, Liquidity Working Group, Bankers Association for Finance and Trade; Philip Stewart, Global Head of Cash and Banking, British American Tobacco; Hays Littlejohn, CEO, EBA CLEARING; Christian Mnich, Senior Director, Solution Management, Working Capital & Treasury Management, SAP; and Harry Newman, Head of Banking, SWIFT – argues that a standardised real-time treasury framework would enable banks to provide a range of value-added services. These include, real-time currency conversion and hedging, instant cash concentration solutions, intraday cash pooling and optimised short-term investments.

These developments come on the back of significant momentum for application programming interfaces (APIs) and real-time payments, which have proliferated worldwide – prompting a knock-on effect for liquidity.

“Real-time clearing and settlement mechanisms, which will become quite distinct from the familiar territory of cut-off times, end-of-day processing, and periodic updates to intraday liquidity positions, will have a fundamental impact on liquidity and collateral management,” says Vanessa Manning, Head of Liquidity and Investment Solutions, Global Transaction Banking, Deutsche Bank. “For example, the way that banks calculate their intraday liquidity buffers is currently based around end-of-day batch processing, and does not necessarily reflect…

Housing needs in the UK are changing amid declining levels of home ownership and lifestyle shifts. Rather than the traditional ‘buy-and-hold’ model, residential housing needs are shifting towards developments that are built for rent and aimed towards a specific demographic who are at a particular life stage. As such, funding needs are changing to support these types of developments and this should lead investors to consider new ways of accessing the property market.

For many years, the typical approach to property investing has been through longer-term investments in buy-to-let and equity. While this ‘bricks and mortar’ approach has worked well for many investors, a fully-valued market in both the residential and commercial sectors means that capital appreciation opportunities are now looking limited. Instead, investors should be looking to work their property assets operationally through shorter-term loan opportunities, which are used to fund the development or redevelopment of buildings in niche areas of the market. By viewing property investments as operational assets, investors can access a growing market opportunity that offers the potential for greater long term reward.

Why is the UK property market experiencing change?

Homeownership levels have fallen dramatically among the younger generation over the last thirty years. In 1991, 67% of 25-34 year olds were homeowners compared with 36% in 2014. Meanwhile, private sector renting more than doubled between 1980 and 2014.

Declining homeownership is resulting from both cyclical economic forces as well as longer-term structural trends. In the post-financial crisis years since 2008, tighter lending standards have reduced the availability of mortgage financing for first time buyers, as low interest rates and constrained housing supply helped to sustain high house price valuations, thereby acting as a further deterrent. Whereas previous generations in the 1980s and 1990s benefited from schemes such…
