Feuillette, J., Soramäki K., Towning W., (2023). Modernizing Intraday Liquidity Optimization for Commercial Banks. FNA Papers, No. 2- 2023, DOI Number: 10.69701/BDZH8309 [Available: https://fna.fi/insights/modernizing-intraday-liquidity-optimization-for-commercial-banks/]



Commercial banks are facing a period of exceptionally difficult funding conditions amidst a challenging economic environment. To address this, banks need to optimize their liquidity flows and usage. But existing liquidity optimisation and management methods fall short of materially reducing liquidity costs and can generate large operational risks. This paper describes how advanced analytics and algorithms can be used to optimize liquidity flows and usage in a real-time environment through payment resequencing. This approach can enable banks to significantly and consistently reduce liquidity usage and costs, potentially turning more effective treasuries into profit centers. This paper also describes the fundamental requirements for embarking on a modern liquidity optimization project, as well as some recommendations for best practices in operational and technological infrastructure.
