The Treasury Hub

In June 2018, RBK collaborated with Treasury Solutions to announce a new service offering “The Treasury Hub”, combining the experience and expertise of both our firms and three other advisory firms nationwide.

Treasury Solutions has been operating for 18 years offering a premium quality treasury advisory service to the medium and large corporate market.

The new service will provide clients of RBK with access to the technical knowledge and financial market intelligence of Treasury Solutions to enable them to offer new products and services to their clients and to deal with the impact on interest rates, foreign exchange and the banking market in general that will inevitably emanate from Brexit, geo-political developments, etc.

The services to be provided via The Treasury Hub include:

  • Debt funding by banks 
  • Debt funding by non-banks 
  • Interest rate risk management 
  • Foreign exchange management 
  • Liquidity management 
  • Cash management 
  • Ad hoc treasury issues 

The provision of the range and quality of these services under The Treasury Hub effectively brings additional expertise to the existing service offering provided to the clients of RBK bringing them an enhanced treasury management solution.

The Treasury Hub - November 2019 Report 1.28 MB

This is the November 2019 issue of the Treasury Hub report, as we continue to bring you our regular Banking and Treasury Report as part of THE TREASURY HUB.The deadline date for the UK to trigger its exit from the EU came and went. The next date is January 31st (or sooner if agreed by parliament) but with an election now called, there remains a risk that “no deal” could still arise. The EUR/GBP exchange rate has held steady around EUR/GBP0.8600, a level that broadly reflects a deal, but the risk is very much on GBP weakening again in the event of no deal.Regardless of Brexit fatigue, it will continue to dominate the business landscape in 2020. Even if the UK meets the transition exit date of January 31st, the current scheduled date for leaving the EU is December 31st 2020, with a possible 2-year extension if requested. In that regard, 2020 budgets will have to reflect this continuing uncertainty. Make sure to read section 5 which focuses on the economic outlook and how it may impact on your company budgets for 2020.

The EUR/GBP exchange rate continues to ebb and flow with markets views on probabilities of a hard or soft Brexit. Short-term rates are trapped in low territory and look like staying there for the foreseeable future. Worries surrounding economic growth with no inflationary pressure has led to Eurozone longer-term interest rates also easing significantly in 2019.
