ChathamDirect Product Update: Q2 2023


To deliver on the advantages clients gain from our seamless integration of advisory, operations, and technology, the ChathamDirect team continually enhances our platform, streamlining the way users manage their exposures, hedging policies, execution, valuations, and hedge accounting.

Enhanced management reporting (BI) for FX

ChathamDirect continues to improve reporting capabilities through Business Intelligence.

Cost of Hedging report

Our new Cost of Hedging report allows you to analyze historical cost/pick-up of your FX hedging program. You can easily compare the forward point cost/pick up by currency pair and take control of execution fee assumptions. You can also compare your cost of hedging by counterparty to arm your team with share-of-wallet data.

Cost of Forward Points report

When thinking about executing new hedges, use the Cost of Forward Points reports to gauge how much forward points will cost by trade notional and trade tenor.

Cash Flow Program Effectiveness report

Companies with a Cash Flow hedging program can take advantage of our new Cash Flow Program Effectiveness report. This report considers your budget rates, existing hedge rates, and prevailing market rates to automatically calculate expected FX gains/losses over time. You can easily understand your hypothetical unhedged outcomes, the impact of your hedges, and the sources of noise that led to discrepancies between the two. You can also drill into program outcomes by currency or entity with our deep-dive single-currency view.

Remeasurement Analysis report

Companies with a Balance Sheet hedging program can take advantage of our new Remeasurement Analysis report. You can quickly compare your hedge gain/loss to your exposure gain/loss to analyze discrepancies by entity and by currency. You can also evaluate hedge gain/loss by seeing the effect of forward point and hedge timing mismatches.

Enhanced management reporting (BI) for commodities

Companies with commodities exposures can access new reports in Business Intelligence.

Counterparty Analysis report

You can efficiently analyze hedge volume and mark-to-market by both index and counterparty. You can also inspect your counterparty share-of-wallet in seconds with our Counterparty Analysis report.

Exposure Management report

You can manage your exposures with our new Exposure Management report. Suggested hedges (based on your company’s targets), forecast analysis, and trade details are all embedded into ChathamDirect.

ChathamDirect user visibility functionality

Now, your treasury team can spend less time gathering, scrubbing, and comparing exposure loads and more time reviewing and analyzing forecasts, so you can save critical time when you need it most. ChathamDirect user visibility functionality enables you to specify which legal entities your decentralized business teams and subsidiaries can access to upload, review, and monitor exposures.

New ChathamDirect homepage and notifications center

Recently, ChathamDirect released a new homepage and notifications center. The new homepage is designed to promote action, giving you one page where you can access market data, transaction data, system reports, quick links, and the latest insights from Chatham. The new notification functionality within ChathamDirect allows clients to quickly access important information and action items within the platform.

Improved integration capabilities

ChathamDirect’s new and improved integration capabilities drastically reduce time and effort through automation. Through our suite of standard integrations for trading platforms, ERPs, or TMSs and our custom integration capabilities, your company’s manual processes around exposure capture, trade execution, and settlements can be optimized.

Looking ahead

We continually engage with you to learn your strategic objectives and day-to-day processes so we can focus our development efforts on the highest potential impact. That means you will continue to see enhanced functionality, tighter integration, and improved performance across our platform. Currently, we are working on general enhancements to our cash flow and balance sheet exposure management modules, including the ability to tag exposures with more descriptive fields. Commodity enhancements within ChathamDirect are also being developed and will appear later in 2023.
