Cash investments are unlike other investments. There are few benchmarks and parameters against which to assess your portfolio and measure its risk/reward characteristics. Utilizing our extensive research capabilities and risk management tools, Capital Advisors Group will evaluate your portfolio to identify strengths and weaknesses, and will make recommendations that aim to help you to reduce risk and enhance liquidity.
Our Credit & Risk Management Oversight service provides a deep, comprehensive review of your cash portfolio, including:
- Risk Attribution. We identify portfolio risks and rate them on a numerical scale.
- Credit Analysis. We review each security and place holdings that lack a clean bill of health on a “watch list.” We list the specific reason(s) why a security must be closely watched, such as troubling credit characteristics, or secondary market liquidity issues. We also provide a likely scenario—and an actionable recommendation—for each watch-listed security.
- Aggregate Exposure. We combine individual portfolio holdings and underlying money market fund holdings to provide a clear view of total exposure by credit, industry, asset class, country, and duration.
- Portfolio Sensitivity. We perform sensitivity analyses to test portfolio market value losses in multiple scenarios of interest rate shifts and credit spread movements.
