Think about it. The one unifying consideration all institutions share — private businesses, non-profit organisations, and even governmental bodies — is the concern over liquidity management. And at the centre of this concern is Treasury Management.
As a fast-growing business, how seamless, flexible, and transparent is it to access secure and better-yielding investments to put your business’ excess cash in? The current processes available in the market are fully manual, opaque and relatively rigid, which make your business susceptible to liquidity and operational risks.
Sprout by Cowrywise is a technology-first approach to investments for fast-growing businesses.
Here are some of the key questions that Sprout answers:
- How easily can businesses access investment offerings?
- Can they find the best rates out there on their own?
- Is performing the investment transactions easy/seamless and transparent?
- Does the investment provide security of capital to avoid putting needed business cash at risk?
- How easily can the investments be liquidated?
Providing answers to these questions with a simple tool is why we built Sprout, a technology-first approach to investments for fast-growing businesses. Sprout is a corporate treasury management tool for businesses, leveraging technology and asset management solutions to help your business unlock an additional revenue stream from idle cash.
On Sprout, we offer both fixed and flexible investment assets.
