The magnet™ liquidity planning answers questions such as
- Do we have enough liquidity?
- Can financing costs and/or financial returns be optimised?
- What information is needed to limit financial risks?
- What currency risks do we have?
- Are information requirements to capital providers fulfilled?
- Are creditworthiness requirements being met?
The currency-specific ‘Liquidity Planning’ module can be used as part of the integrated magnet™ Treasury solution. But it can also be used as a stand-alone module that coexists with other treasury systems or as a replacement for an existing Excel solution with corresponding import options. It is suitable for companies of almost any size, from SMEs to multi’s, and for practically all industries. The solution impresses with a simple structure that can be set up quickly.
The design of the liquidity planning is completely flexible due to the freely selectable plan categories, groupings and summations. As a rule, the plan is set up according to the ‘direct method’. The period structure (days / weeks / months / quarters / semesters / years) is equally flexible and allows evaluations over several years. There is the possibility of rolling planning and/or via a ‘definition of planning periods’. The ‘Definition of planning periods’ can be used to specify the period in which data can be recorded for a planning period. It is also possible to see which companies have already reported their target figures for this planning period. Likewise, different planning periods can be analysed and compared. With the ‘Currency Exposure‘ report, the FX exposure of a company and/or a group can be determined in any currency. With or without FX hedging already carried out and the corresponding hedge ratio. Based on a hedging strategy (with hedging ratios), the system proposes hedging FX deals.
Discrepancy analyses (plan vs plan and actual vs plan) allow tracking of past plan accuracy.
