The aim of the liquidity planning is the currency-differentiated identification of the expected level of liquid financial resources. The liquidity plan is an important controlling instrument for the timely assessment and evaluation of risks. If financial difficulties are identified, a company must take appropriate measures.
Liquidity planning should answer these important questions
by company/currency and consolidated:
Liquidity planning from magnet™ answers such questions and provides a basis for decision-making for the identification and evaluation of risks. The basis for this is provided by drill-down functions and a wide variety of graphical representations.
The currency-differentiated module can be used as part of the integrated magnet™-Treasury “complete” solution. But it can also be used as a stand-alone module with coexistence with other treasury systems or as a replacement for an existing Excel solution with appropriate import options. It is suitable for companies of almost any size, from SMEs to multinationals, and for almost all industries. The solution impresses with a simple structure that can be set up in a short time.
The design of the liquidity planning is completely flexible due to the freely selectable plan categories, groupings and totals. As a rule, the plan is structured according to the ‘direct method’. The period structure (days / weeks / months / quarters / semesters / years) is also flexible and allows evaluations over several years. There is the option 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 certain planning period. It is also possible to see which companies have already reported their forecast figures for this 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 identified in any currency (with or without FX hedging execution vs corresponding hedge ratio). Based on a hedging strategy (with hedging ratios), the system proposes hedging FX deals. Variance analyses (plan vs plan and actual vs plan) allow tracking of past plan accuracy.
