OASIS Investment Strategies is an institutional provider of customized, separately managed cash and collateral management services for alternative investment firms

Customized Cash Management

Alpha on your operational cash is great, but not if it comes at the expense of increased risk to your firm or your clients. We start by understanding your liquidity requirements, risk tolerance and return objectives. These drive the decisions we make about how to structure your customized, separately managed portfolio. We adhere to your liquidity needs from both an operational and regulatory point of view, mindful of market trends and volatility.

Pro-Active Margin and Collateral Management

At OASIS, we are dedicated to optimizing the return on excess margin capital while minimizing non-yield producing assets. Actively managing excess margin is a virtually untapped area for producing additional returns, and you can count on us to deliver because of our hands-on approach and experience converting margin cash to yield-enhancing collateral. We’re the logical alternative to static separately managed accounts and money market funds.

Leverage Our Custodial Relationship

Wells Fargo Bank is our preferred custodian, keeping each customer’s investments separate and segregated. And, we can help you set up a separately managed custody account at Wells Fargo in a timely, efficient manner. Customer assets are not combined or co-mingled, and have no exposure to Wells Fargo, OASIS or our affiliated companies.

Treasury and Back-Office Support

Focus more on strategy and revenue and less on operational busywork. On your direction, we can take care of moving money on a daily basis, being the payment facilitator for subscriptions and redemptions, and coordinating with administrators and operational banks.

With more than $4 billion in assets under management, we have the connections, market depth, research and resources to deliver institutional-quality execution, no matter your portfolio size.

Acting strictly as agents on your behalf, our daily attention to your cash holdings can produce alpha and satisfy the most discriminating of your investors. For each of our clients, we provide a customized, separately managed portfolio that is structured to meet specific cash flow, maturity, credit quality and investment objectives.
