How Interest Rate Hikes Impact Corporate Treasuries
Inflation has steadily been on the rise, and the Federal Reserve took initial action to limit this trend by raising interest rates 0.25% in March - with an expeditious rate hike schedule expected throughout the year. Corporates were already sitting on record amounts of cash due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but as interest rates increase, so too will the yields available on short term investments - including demand deposit accounts, term deposits and money market funds. This represents an opportunity for treasurers to optimize the use of their short term cash, and to generate incremental revenues for their organizations. In fact, operating, reserve and strategic cash can all benefit from higher rates. 

Going forward, treasurers should seek transparency from their banks on how they will adjust rates following the expected Fed increases. GS clients and research subscribers can log in to read the latest research article on this topic.

                            ACH Rule Changes
There have been some recent changes to NACHA rules that clients in the U.S. sending and receiving ACH transactions should be aware of. This includes an increase in the per transaction amount limit for same day ACH transactions from $100,000 to $1,000,000 -  resulting in faster settlements for more transactions and use cases. In addition, a WEB debits account validation rule that went into effect in March 2021 is now enforceable, which will impact clients that initiate direct debits to bank accounts through the ACH network. Clients can click here to learn more about upcoming ACH changes.
