Ready, Set, Go…

Imagine yourself as a race car driver at the Daytona 500, ready to stomp on the gas pedal as the starter waves the flag, only to find out that there’s no gas in the tank. As the other cars go zooming away, you’re stuck at the starting line with a very red face.

three+one race car liquidity analysisNow consider liquidity analysis and data to be your fuel going into 2022, as you gear up to take advantage of the Federal Reserve’s expected rate hikes next year.

Knowing exactly how much cash your entity needs to put to work is part of your fiduciary duty.  Imagine the embarrassment, as rates take off, if you’re left behind earning no income, while others are passing you by, potentially earning 25-50 basis points or more on their cash.

Now is the time to determine your levels of liquidity—and be confident knowing how much cash you can put to work as rates rise.

As the Bank of England and the Central Bank of Norway have already raised their interest rates, imagine having a full tank of liquidity data as you start 2022, so you can be far ahead of the Fed’s interest rate increases.

Statistical Proof: Using Liquidity Data to Outpace Benchmarks

Statistical Proof: Using Liquidity Data to Outpace Benchmarks

Statistical proof can only be verified by reliable data. If you have verifiable data, you can have confidence in the decisions you make using that data.

Liquidity analysis and data can provide transparency and confidence in one’s cash levels, not only what had occurred in the past, but also can help predict with accuracy what cash levels should be in the future.

Just imagine having had that level of information before and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Would you have made any different decisions?

Liquidity data provides transparency, confidence in decision making, velocity, and delivers peace of mind during periods of uncertainty.

cashVest® by three+one® is the liquidity analysis tool that gives public entities and higher Ed institutions the statistical proof they need to make sound decisions—in good times and hard times.

Below is a convenient instant-replay of a webinar generously hosted by our partners at NACo. Once seeing for yourself the value of cashvest for public entities, contact us to learn more.
