Key takeaways

  • While 3PM offers significant benefits for treasurers, it also brings with it obligations and requirements, especially when it is comprised of multiple currencies.
  • Multicurrency notional pooling provides account structuring, which is compatible to clients’ segregation and safeguarding obligations.
  • 3PM notional pooling is expected to be widely adopted thanks to the efficiencies it delivers.

With the shift to an online, digital-first economy, 3PM has sparked an exciting new frontier of extended responsibility and immense opportunity for treasurers. At the same time, it is adding intricacies for treasury management, as it is different from handling corporate cash, which carries additional obligations.

In response, liquidity techniques, including notional pooling, need to be appropriately configured to comply with the applicable safeguarding requirements. With a 3PM-specific design, it is possible to integrate corporate and third-party fund flows into a single multicurrency notional pooling arrangement in full compatibility with safeguarding requirements. The result is the ability to continue to operate at maximum efficiency even when new obligations are concerned, achieving key benefits such as:

  1. Visibility and control that allow for managing and efficiently forecasting for corporate versus 3PM payment flows 
  2. Improved functionality in managing diverse fund flows across multiple currencies originating from 3PM activities 
  3. Tailored design that is congruent with segregation and safeguarding obligations

Explore the opportunity

Take, for example, a global company that operates a digital commerce platform, connecting buyers with merchants of goods or services that do not originate entirely — or at all — from them. It handles funds denominated in various currencies that belong to third parties (i.e., the merchants) from numerous jurisdictions and countries around the globe.

In order for the company to consolidate multiple currencies within a single liquidity structure, enable netting and keep a single liquidity position across the fund flows, they can rely on the 3PM notional pooling solution. This tailored product design centers on the compatibility between managing safeguarding obligations and the operational benefits of notional pooling. In short, it allows businesses, like yours, to run at optimal efficiency across multiple currencies of 3PM flows.
