BNY Mellon's LiquidityDirect adds new investment options

BNY Mellon’s investment platform, LiquidityDirect, has expanded, adding new investment options and ESG analytics. 

LiquidityDirect’s clients are now able to invest cash in commercial paper (CP) and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) while also being able to leverage a new search application that introduces Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings onto the portal.

The new offerings on LiquidityDirect enable clients to select from a range of investments at the click of a button. Commercial Paper (CP) is short-duration debt issued by banks and corporations with maturities ranging from overnight to one year. Short-Duration Fixed Income ETFs typically invest in short-term government securities like US Treasury bills or investment-grade corporate bonds and are an alternative near-term investment option.

In addition, LiquidityDirect is increasing access to its investment platform for clients through a new collaboration with treasury workstation provider Indus Valley Partners (IVP). To date, LiquidityDirect is also fully integrated with cash management systems such as GTreasury and Hazeltree.
