The Role of the Treasury Aggregator: Simplifying Corporate Treasury Complexity
Let’s face it: treasury is complex. The larger and more globally distributed the company’s business needs, the more the complexity grows — and the more challenging it becomes for treasury staff to manage. That’s where a treasury aggregator can help.
What is a Treasury Aggregator?
Strategic Treasurer defines a treasury aggregator as “a solution that provides a single connection point to all of a corporate’s banking connections for both payments and reporting.” These providers may also be known as multibank connectivity providers or third-party bank connectivity providers.
The primary function of a treasury aggregator is to “bridge the gap” between an organization and its banks, providing the infrastructure to deliver effective and efficient cash management. These solutions pull in and consolidate data, and also have payment hub functionality. While some treasury management solutions have these features, or may subcontract with a treasury aggregator to provide more robust connectivity services, most organizations with complex treasury needs would need a treasury aggregator in addition to a TMS.
