Citi Launches CitiDirect BE® Cash Concentration

Innovative solution offers online self-management of cash structures to clients


London - Citi has announced the launch of its new global liquidity solution, CitiDirect BE® Cash Concentration, which allows clients to digitally manage their cash pooling structures through Citi’s online treasury management tool.

Clients will have the option to update parameters such as transfer pricing, inter-account lending limits, SWIFT message transaction descriptions and to delete accounts. In addition, clients will be able to respond faster to changing market conditions and have an online view of their cash concentration structures.

Brandon Walker, Treasury Manager of Yum! Brands, Inc. commented: “Citi’s digital cash concentration tool is both intuitive and rich with functionality. It gives us access to all the information and options available in the cash concentration solution, all in one system and in a very simple and clear way.”
