Liquidity

Liquidity management is a set of techniques and strategic policies that enables companies to achieve optimal profitability from under-utilised cash and increase control over cash flows. It is the management of the cash balances and short-term investment strategies. The efficient management of cash improves profitability, reduces risk exposure and thereby prevents bankruptcy.  

Services offered by our liquidity management team include: 

Pooling  

  • Pooling (also referred to as notional pooling) allows the bank to pool cash in your liquidity management structure. You will accrue or be charged interest, depending on the net balance of the pooled cash. This varies depending on whether you have a negative balance or a positive balance. The primary purpose of a notional pool is to reduce the overdraft interest when you have a negative balance or to maximise interest on your cash when you have a positive balance.  There is no movement of your cash from your account and there is no co-mingling of balances, we simply get a snapshot of your cash position. Notional pooling, where allowed, is normally part of a product set offered to customers. 

Sweeping  

  • Here, balances (both debit and credit) in participating accounts are physically transferred into a concentration, master or nominated account for management by group treasury. Sweeping can be done on a zero-balance basis, where the balances in the accounts are brought to zero or where accounts are left at a target level. Sweeping between legal entities creates intercompany loans, on which interest must be paid or received. This is very beneficial when you have independent companies within a group structure, or independent cash generating departments within a single company.    
  • You also get to enjoy an exchange control advisory service which assists with advice on cross-border liquidity management services 
     
Collections

Stanbic Bank’s collection solutions ensure value is passed to your accounts as quickly and securely as possible, and that enough information is provided for you to identify the source of any funds entering your accounts. 

Our range of collection solutions include: 

  • Direct debit: Funds are pulled electronically from your debtor’s account for credit to your bank account. 
  • Cash collection via numerous channels, including Auto Safe (a secure cash accepting terminal that counts, verifies, validates and secures bank notes in a tamper-proof container on your premises), branches and cash centres.  
  • Teller on site: A team of bank tellers handle receipting and counting of cash on your premises. 
  • Cheque collection. 
  • Foreign currency receipts. 
  • Merchant acquiring service: A facility that allows your customers to pay by credit or debit card. 
     

 

Payments 

Stanbic Bank’s payment solutions ensure that your payments are implemented accurately and on time. Payments can be made electronically via a range of secure data transfer channels, or physically by means of cash, cheque or card. 
Our electronic payment solutions enable our clients to: 

  • Initiate payments from remote locations in Uganda, the rest of Africa and globally. 
  • Make single or bulk payments, for same day value or future value 
  • Make local or foreign currency payments from a single point of origin
