Aquarius: Intraday Liquidity Management for Cash, Securities, and Collateral

Banks, now more than ever, require a simultaneous view of liquidity on a single platform with siloed legacy treasury systems often resulting in inaccurate or conflicting data, the consolidation of which is both time consuming and costly. Additionally, a lack of integration makes compliance with new regulations extremely burdensome.

Aquarius is an innovative and modular Liquidity Management System developed by TAS Group to help banks in the digital transformation of their treasury.

It supports the operational management of cash and liquid assets over different channels: large value payment systems, clearing and settlement systems, correspondent banks. 

It provides a real-time and forecast view of liquidity usage in order to efficiently allocate liquidity as per targeted business models or compliance request.
