Cash Management

  1. 1. Cash Management Cash Cycle Factors that influence the desired level of cash Optimal cash inventories Short-term investment strategies
  2. 2. Resource Decisions Information Decisions Financing Decisions Managing an entity’s Resources Cash Management Inventory Management Working Capital Management Investment in Human Capital Long-term Assets Accounts Receivable Debt vs. Tax Financing Cost of Capital Discount Rate Value Creation Financial Markets Cash Inflows Operating Decisions Life cycle effects, Business cycle, public events, etc. The Manager Investment Decisions Human Resources Decisions Economics of Information Database Management Data Modeling IS Planning & Development Recruitment, Selection Training, Productivity Performance Appraisal Compensation Unions & Labor Relations
  3. 3. Overview <ul><li>ST fin’l planning = deals w/ short-lived assets and liabilities (working capital management); </li></ul><ul><li>concerned w/ 1) size of investment in CA like cash, A/R, Inventory…a tool is cash budget analysis and 2) how to finance ST assets…a tool is performing credit analysis </li></ul>
  4. 4. Managing WC involves determing: <ul><li>How much to invest in CA? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- CA vs. FA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Nature of activities/programs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In each CA? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Cash, A/R, Inventory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Cash Mgt </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- A/R is Credit Mgt </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Inv = POM & Cash balance models </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Our objectives <ul><li>Learn about the Cash Cycle </li></ul><ul><li>Understand the factors that influence the desired level of cash </li></ul><ul><li>Learn two models that calculate the optimal level of cash </li></ul><ul><li>Gain an overview of what factors/areas are inputs to a cash budget and how they affect the cash balance </li></ul>
  6. 6. Objectives of Public Money Managers <ul><li>Bringing the entity’s cash resources within control </li></ul><ul><li>Achieving optimum conservation and utilization of the funds </li></ul>
  7. 7. Key areas of Public Cash Management <ul><li>Organization </li></ul><ul><li>Collection and disbursement of funds </li></ul><ul><li>Netting of interagency payments </li></ul><ul><li>Investment of excess funds </li></ul><ul><li>Optimal level of cash balances </li></ul><ul><li>Cash planning and budgeting </li></ul><ul><li>Bank relations </li></ul>
  8. 8. Treasury Management of Cash Balances <ul><li>Operate with smaller amount of cash </li></ul><ul><li>Supervision is centralized </li></ul><ul><li>Better service from banks </li></ul><ul><li>Proper allocation of funds </li></ul>
  9. 9. How much cash should a organization keep on hand? <ul><li>Enough cash to make payments when needed. (transactions motive) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(Daily or Weekly Cash Budget helpful) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional cash may be held for unexpected requirements. (precautionary motive) </li></ul>
  10. 10. The size of the minimum cash balance depends on: <ul><li>How quickly and cheaply a organization can raise cash when needed. </li></ul><ul><li>How accurately managers can predict cash requirements. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(Cash Budget helpful) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How much precautionary cash the managers need for emergencies. </li></ul>
  11. 11. The organization’s maximum cash balance depends on: <ul><li>Available (short-term) investment opportunities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. money market funds, CDs, commercial paper </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Expected return on investment opportunities. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. If expected returns are high, organizations should be quick to invest excess cash </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Transaction cost of withdrawing cash and making an investment </li></ul><ul><li>Demand for Cash for daily transactions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(Cash Budget helpful) </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Consider Cash an ‘Inventory’ Grantsville has a daily demand for cash of $10,000. Grantsville’s treasurer invests excess cash in the state investment pool that earns .01% per day. In order to transfer funds from the state pool, Grantsville must pay a transaction cost of $20. How much cash should it transfer when it runs out. (Grantsville can complete the cash transfer electronically so it waits until the cash balance is zero). An inventory approach to Cash Balance decisions: the trade-offs: - hold little cash = invest remainder in M/S to earn interest - if hold too little cash = incur transactions costs to meet cash needs - hold lots of cash = forgo investing in M/S and earning interest
  13. 13. Order Quantity (Z) Cost ($) Z * Total Costs Holding Costs: (Z/2)*r Order Costs:(M / Z)*TC Optimal Cash Balance via Baumol Model Z * Z*=  [(2M*TC)/r] M = $10,000 r = .01%  .0001 TC = $20 Z = $63,246
  14. 14. Problems with the Baumol Model <ul><li>Cash flows may not be very predictable, much less </li></ul><ul><li>constant </li></ul><ul><li>Treasurers may want a ‘safety stock’ of cash </li></ul>
  15. 15. The Miller - Orr Model <ul><li>The Miller-Orr Model provides a formula for determining the optimum cash balance (Z), the point at which to sell securities to raise cash (lower limit L) and when to invest excess cash by buying securities and lowering cash holdings (upper limit H). </li></ul><ul><li>Depends on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>transaction costs of buying or selling securities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>variability of daily cash (incorporates uncertainty) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>return on short-term investments </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. The Miller - Orr Model Days of the Month Dollars in the Cash Account Lower Limit Upper Limit Z Sell Securities Buy Securities H L
  17. 17. The Miller-Orr Model - Target Cash Balance (Z) 3 x TC x V 4 x r Z = + L 3 where: TC = transaction cost of buying or selling securities V = variance of daily cash flows r = daily return on short-term investments L = minimum cash requirement
  18. 18. <ul><li>Example: Suppose that short-term securities yield 5% per year and it costs the organization $50 each time it buys or sells securities (TC). The daily variance of cash flows is $1000 (V) and your bank requires $1,000 minimum checking account balance (L).* </li></ul>The Miller-Orr Model - Target Cash Balance (Z) 3 x 50 x 1000 4 x .05/360 Z = + $1,000 = $3,000 + $1,000 = $4,000 3
  19. 19. The Miller-Orr Model - Upper Limit <ul><li>The upper limit for the cash account (H) is determined by the equation: H = 3Z - 2L where: Z = Target cash balance L = Lower limit </li></ul><ul><li>In the previous example: H = 3 ($4,000) - 2($1,000) = $10,000 </li></ul>
  20. 20. The Miller - Orr Model Days of the Month Dollars in the Cash Account Lower Limit Upper Limit $4000 Sell Securities Buy Securities $10,000 $1000
  21. 21. Cash Pooling <ul><li>Centralized cash management involves transfer </li></ul><ul><li>of an agency’s cash in excess of minimal </li></ul><ul><li>operating requirements into a centrally managed </li></ul><ul><li>account also known as a cash pool. </li></ul><ul><li>Procedure </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits </li></ul>

  23. 24. The Collection & Disbursement of Public Funds <ul><li>Controlling Cash Collection & Disbursement </li></ul><ul><li>Dual responsibility </li></ul><ul><li>Receipts maintained in a location separate from cash & checks </li></ul><ul><li>Certification of vouchers </li></ul><ul><li>Managing Cash Balances </li></ul><ul><li>Safety </li></ul><ul><li>Liquidity </li></ul><ul><li>Maximize pool of funds available for investment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Concentration Accounts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Zero-balance accounts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Highest yield </li></ul>

Disbursement of funds <ul><li>Importance of disbursement of funds </li></ul><ul><li>Review of disbursements </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Payment instruments being used (checks, drafts, wire transfers, etc.) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Bank charges and internal costs </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Techniques being used </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Time involved for processing of instruments </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  26. 27. Payments Netting in Public Cash Management <ul><li>Need for payments netting </li></ul><ul><li>Procedure involved </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Only netted amount is transferred (bilateral netting) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Netting center (multilateral netting) </li></ul></ul>
