At Vuca Treasury we specialise in managing financial risk
At VUCA Treasury, we leverage our 100 years of cumulative banking experience within treasury and capital markets to ensure that our clients have the qualitative guidance and quantitative tools to make informed decisions about the financial risks that arise from the strategic decisions they take. In 2021, we advised on transactions with a notional value in excess of $1 billion.
Unlike conflicted banks or brokers providing “advice” on products they are selling, our recommendations are unbiased and specific to your situation. We take time to understand the objectives of key stakeholders, their challenges as well as the operating environment so that our recommendations are fully aligned with your goals and objectives. VUCA Treasury is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom under the reference number 930420.
At VUCA Treasury, our background in banking provides us with particular insight into how loan and hedging products are structured and priced. We apply this knowledge to ensure that the chosen product is priced fairly, structured correctly and is suitable and appropriate. Our services include:
Whether it's a condition of loan sanction or a discretionary decision, Vuca Treasury will ensure your hedging transaction is executed professionally. We assist with the implementation of your hedging strategy; modelling your cash flows and overlaying these with hedging alternatives to arrive at your optimal combination of cost and risk. We facilitate onboarding with your hedge provider and negotiate on pricing to ensure you don't overpay.
Your bank or broker is a salesperson, not your advisor. We can provide you with guidance on products and develop with you an FX policy that aligns with your goals and objectives. With access to the same pricing models as the major banks, we can provide you with full pricing transparency on your FX transactions. If you’re overpaying, we can negotiate improved terms with your provider or use our panel of FX providers to find you a better offering
Treasury divisions are typically responsible for funding, cash & liquidity management and hedging financial risks. In smaller businesses, this responsibility falls to the Finance Director. However, quite often there isn’t a clear and actionable structure in place to direct, monitor and control these activities. At Vuca, we provide a framework for our clients to make sure that the financial decisions taken are consistent with the strategic objectives and risk profile of shareholders and other key stakeholders.
It’s important to control your exposure to financial markets. We have designed and developed a comprehensive Currency Risk Management course to help professional advisors, investment directors or finance teams at corporates identify, assess and mitigate financial risk.
The interplay between Security, Liquidity and Yield determines the optimal cash management strategy for your business. Vuca can work with you to optimise your cash management strategy, balancing these three competing objectives.
With multi-decade experience across currency, interest rate and commodity markets, Vuca Treasury is your go-to authority and domain expert in the business for derivatives. Our expertise covers every aspect of derivatives management, including trading & execution, booking, modelling, documentation, valuing, financing, reporting and regulation
A key financial market event for 2021 will be the discontinuation of libor reference rates that will take place globally over the next 2 years. This will result in the repricing and renegotiation of trillions of dollars of legacy cash, debt and derivative contracts globally and the creation of new financial contracts with an unfamiliar benchmark. We have developed a software solution that sits alongside your existing platforms to simplify this change process.
