Unfortunately we don’t have a crystal ball but our aim is to ensure that through our strong relationships with the various financial institutions, we will be ready when rates do start to rise. More importantly, as we speak to banks every day, we are constantly made aware of any change of appetite.

Wells Money Brokers offers a low, fixed cost, NON-DISCRETIONARY service to our clients.

Excellent! We don’t hold money and cannot offer you a reconciliation service but we can offer you market leading rates, assistance with managing relationships, finding new relationships within criteria, managing credit risk, providing reports to regulators and building an investment policy to suit your business needs. This is seen by many of our clients as a significant cost saving to handling all of these areas internally and in many cases freeing up an FD to deal with more significant challenges within the business whilst cash remains so unrewarding.

Wells Money Brokers does not hold deposits and all of our clients place money directly with the receiving banks.

Additionally, in conjunction with Your Treasurer we are able to provide a detailed but concise independent review of your existing counterparties marked against your minimum credit risk criteria. Your Treasurer then provides immediate alerts to the deterioration of credit quality should it happen and also reports at a regularity to suit you for onward presentation to company stakeholders or in many cases the relevant regulators.

Our clients often refer to us as an invaluable extra pair of eyes and ears in the market
