ICD today launched ICD Portal™, its next generation institutional money market fund trading and risk management platform, culminating more than two years of comprehensive design and benchmark system development. The company is rolling out internationally for corporate clients spanning 25 countries and featuring money funds denominated in six major currencies. ICD is providing live demonstrations of the advanced, analytics-driven ICD Portal at the 2011 AFP Conference in Boston.
The Internet-based ICD Portal, which is available at no cost to its clients, delivers a comprehensive end-to-end, institutional investing "best practices" methodology that includes portfolio diversification, exposure analytics, compliance management, portfolio optimization and dynamic reporting - all coherently developed for a streamlined corporate treasury user experience.
Key to the portal system is its highly customizable open architecture designed to rapidly integrate with treasury management systems (TMS), treasury workstations (TWS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and other treasury technologies. ICD Portal features Sestus™ multifactor user authentication security, Verisign™, SWIFT messaging, ICD's expandable Trade Ticket system, investment policy monitoring, on-demand reporting and archival publishing.
ICD's Golden, Colorado technology group developed the world-class portal with the goal of deeply integrating its industry-leading Transparency Plus exposure analytics application into every operational dimension of ICD's new trading and risk management system. ICD then teamed with industry experts Treasury Strategies to develop investment guideline parameters and ranges for compliance and policy management.
"The corporate treasury marketplace is migrating to portal systems with embedded exposure analytics. Without it, you're truly vulnerable in today's trading environment," said Jeff Jellison, ICD's CEO North America. "ICD's next generation Portal is a landmark achievement for the company and provides a complete solution to efficiently, effectively and securely trade while dynamically managing risk."
Comprised of FINRA/SIPC member Institutional Cash Distributors, LLC, and Institutional Cash Distributors Ltd, a U.K. Financial Services Authority registered firm, ICD is the world's premiere money market fund trading and risk management portal, providing superior services to corporate treasuries worldwide.
