Manage liquidity across your whole business easily and efficiently. We provide a range of solutions to help optimise returns on your cash deposits – and to automate transactions and reduce the time you spend on administration.

Solutions for your business
  • Access attractive returns via our interest-bearing accounts
  • Efficiently manage all your surplus funds – domestically and cross-border
  • Mitigate exchange rate risk through our currency deposit products
  • Reduce administration and manage client funds effectively through our Client Monies Management products.
  • Consolidate cash positions and optimise your liquidity wherever you bank with our Cash Concentration tool, featuring automated cash sweeping.

    Is it right for you?

    • You have a centralised treasury function
    • You want to automate the movement of surplus overseas balances to your treasury centre
    • You want to be able to concentrate cash domestically or globally, including through third-party banks.1

    How it supports your business

    • Allows you to manage your liquidity more efficiently, giving you greater funding and investment capability and flexibility
    • Lets you set up automated cash sweeping between accounts held with Barclays or other banks1, both domestically and cross border
    • Allows you to sweep funds automatically  to a centrally managed account, based on your specified balance or frequency
    • Enables you to standardise, streamline and centralise your treasury management – and reduce administrative time and costs by automating the sweeping process.

    1 We can offer cash concentration globally between Barclays offices and/or third-party banks. This is subject to bilateral agreements between banks, and  requires third-party banks to have the requisite SWIFT capability.

  • Make your working capital work harder with our cash pooling solutions:

    • Aggregate multiple account balances to minimise the interest you pay – or maximise the interest you earn
    • Work with our Cash Management specialists to tailor our services and accounts to your business’s exact needs.

    How it supports your business:

    • Enables you to improve liquidity by offsetting debit positions against credit positions, and by centralising your treasury function
    • Increases your funding and investment capability
    • Allows your business  to optimise its interest position
    • Offers the choice of physical or notional cash pooling – including automatic sweeping using our Cash Concentration tool.
  • Efficiently manage client funds while benefitting from reduced administration and the ability to automate transactions.

    Simplify the administration of your clients’ funds and potentially reduce administration with our range of client monies products – from general-use client accounts to services that directly link bank and in-house systems – helping to optimise the client funds management process.

    Is it right for you?

    • You can hold funds on behalf of clients while earning competitive tiered rates of interest
    • You can choose the product that best meets your organisation’s needs or obligations – from a convenient cheque account to virtual designated sub-accounts
