Cachematrix Enters Asia-Pacific Market via Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ
DENVER, March 19, 2013 -Cachematrix (www.cachematrix.com), the leading provider of institutional money market fund and fixed income trading technology for banks and financial institutions, announced today that its partnership with Union Bank, N.A. has led to a direct relationship with parent company The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. (BTMU) to provide trading technology for the bank's corporate clients.
With growing demand for liquidity and cash management solutions from its corporate customers, BTMU had the vision to capitalize on Cachematrix's existing relationship with Union Bank. Treasurers at global, multi-national corporations are increasingly looking to implement automated short-term cash management systems via portal technology because corporations place a premium on the safety, convenience, and liquidity that Money Market Fund and Bank Product portals provide. As independent, non-bank portal providers continue to take market share (and revenue) from banks that do not offer portal technology, banks are quickly realizing the need to offer an internal proprietary solution.
Cachematrix's SaaS model gives banks the ability to capitalize on existing, proven technology to provide liquidity solutions for their clients with rapid speed to market.
"I am very excited about our new relationship with The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. This is an excellent growth opportunity for Cachematrix as we expand into the Asia-Pacific region," said Cachematrix Founder and CEO, George Hagerman. "I can tell you that from our long standing and successful relationship with our partner Union Bank, I am not at all surprised to see their parent company leading the way in Asia with regard to technology solutions."
Hagerman added, "With bank deposits at such immense levels, corporations are looking for other ways to advance their relationship with their banks through diversifying into other bank products, and that is what Cachematrix delivers."
