ISG                        centres. This strategy places a premium on cash management and
                           related services – which is where RBS came in.
                           RBS have been an advisor to ISG in the UK. When ISG was looking for
                           a banking partner which could provide global cash management services,
                           especially in Asia, it turned to RBS. The relationship in Asia started with
                           current account facilities for ISG in Singapore and trade lines to finance
                           bonds and guarantees on ISG projects in the region. The mandate has
                           now grown to include global cash management for ISG, coupled with the
                           RBS electronic banking facility Access Online. RBS is able to offer these
                           services because its global network means it can support clients in any
                           time zone at any time.
                           ISG’s treasury team wanted to control its overall cash position worldwide
                           from its London headquarters and minimise the risks associated with
                           holding multiple accounts in a range of currencies. The RBS global
                           network, along with its cash management experience and technology,
                           has enabled ISG to do just that.
