Hazeltree and Lionpoint team up to advance treasury
NEW YORK and HONG KONG and LONDON, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Hazeltree, the leading provider of integrated treasury management and portfolio financing solutions for investment managers, and Lionpoint Group, a global digital transformation consultancy in the alternative investment industry today announced a strategic alliance. Working with Hazeltree, Lionpoint officially launched its treasury management practice focusing on private capital markets, including private equity and debt, real estate and infrastructure.
Lionpoint’s treasury management practice advises clients on how to effectively redesign their cash, treasury and operational processes to implement Hazeltree’s treasury solution. Through the partnership with Hazeltree, both companies combine the industry-leading treasury management technology of its class with consulting and professional services expertise especially for private capital market clients.
“The treasury management function in asset managers in the private capital market is still largely reserved for bank portal technology, which is supported by a large number of spreadsheet-based processes. The industry is only now turning to technology to support its cash and credit line processes through workflow and data integration. The main drivers for change are greatly improved internal controls and operational efficiencies, ”said Jonathan Balkin, Lionpoint Co-Founder and Executive Director. “Our partner Hazeltree has taken on a pioneering role in the development of private market-specific treasury management software; You stand out as the only provider who exactly understands and serves this specialized market of asset managers. “
“We are excited to partner with Lionpoint due to the growing number of joint customers,” said Sameer Shalaby, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hazeltree. “We have seen time and again that our customers regard Lionpoint as the market leader in strategic and operational consulting for the private capital market sector. Our two law firms share the same conviction that sensible support for private clients requires a deep understanding and a strong focus on the unique and complex processes of our clients’ business. Private markets are a growing sector of alternatives that have unique needs that have not been addressed by other industry providers. Our partnership with Lionpoint responds to the needs of this important and growing market segment. “
