Cachematrix by BlackRock launches new mobile app for cash investors

The app is now available to cash investors in 20 countries totaling over $300 billion in assets under management1

NEW YORK, October 12, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cachematrix, one of the largest and oldest cash management platforms in the world2announced today that customers of the Cachematrix by BlackRock portal will now be able to access the liquidity market through a mobile app.

Leveraging Cachematrix’s decades of experience integrating with cash management, banking and depository systems, Cachematrix by BlackRock will now offer its users a multi-channel experience, providing real-time monitoring of client accounts with the convenience of mobile access.

“Cash managers are experiencing one of the most volatile markets in decades, and risk management is more important than ever,” said Roland Villacorta, global head of cash management and securities lending at BlackRock. “We have been investing in this technology for several years in anticipation of the changing needs of our customers, and we are proud to offer them the peace of mind that comes with a real-time view of their positions.”

With the new mobile platform, users will have a current view of their accounts, including current positions, orders and historical transactions. The app will also allow customers to receive real-time notification of updates to their accounts while on the go. Going forward, Cachematrix by BlackRock customers will also be able to make subscription and redemption requests to their money market funds directly through the app.

Another feature of the mobile application is its dual authorization function, providing treasury decision makers the ability to quickly sign money market subscription or redemption requests (“orders”) made by traders in their organizations. BlackRock estimates that up to 60% of all orders placed on the Cachematrix by BlackRock portal require dual authorization1.

“Timely order approvals are critical in the money market fund space, where billion dollar trades can occur during the day. With our new app, cash managers no longer have to worry about staying close to their desk for same-day settlement,” said Cindy. Bernhardt, Global Head of Cachematrix. “As we continue to see rates rise, managers are looking for the ability to capture yield by locking in trades conveniently and in real time.”

“This innovation builds on the knowledge our developers around the world have gained from building and continuously improving the Aladdin platform,” said Lance Braunstein, Aladdin Product Group Manager. “We are extremely proud to bring a new Cachematrix by BlackRock mobile experience to the cash market for our customers.”

The mobile app will be available for iPhone users in the US, UK and select EMEA countries.3.
