Focusing on customized investment strategies for liquidity-focused investors. Working with private & public corporations, non-profits, individuals, family offices & significant investors.


Welcome to Hayes Basich Cash Management Group

As Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Advisors, we combine our own talents and experience with the vast resources of a global financial services firm to address the planning, governance, liability management and investing needs of private & public corporations, non-profits, individuals, family offices and other significant investors who are looking for a customized investment strategy for a liquidity-focused portfolio. 

Since joining Morgan Stanley in 1977,  the Hayes Basich Cash Management Group has managed portfolios ranging from several million to more than $1.2 billion with most client mandates in the $10 to $250 million range. The common theme among these clients is that the funds entrusted to our management are eventually going to be used for something else.  Whether for building a new business, mergers and acquisitions, capital expenditures or future investments, liquidity-focused investing requires a client-specific approach and investment strategy that should be delivered by a team specialized in such strategies.  The Hayes Basich Cash Management Group can provide those strategies to meet your needs. 

We look forward to learning more about you and your goals and the opportunity to discuss the resources we can place at your disposal.

Discovery Process
Investing the time to learn about you and your family; your assets and liabilities and the risk exposures, enables us to formulate strategies and customize the relationship to your needs.

Formulation of Tax, Trust and Estate Strategy
Working with your tax and legal advisors, we help analyze your income and estate tax circumstances to identify and tailor planning techniques that may be used to address your objectives.

Creation of Customized Strategic Asset Allocation
Your customized asset allocation reflects risk, opportunities and taxation across multiple entities, while integrating your investing and estate plans.

Integration of Tactical Asset Allocation
Short-term adjustments seek to capitalize on temporary market distortions. Before making adjustments, we analyze the impact of taxes and trading costs on potential returns.

Implementation of a Customized Wealth Strategy
After comprehensive due diligence and analysis of expected results across multiple market scenarios, strategies are chosen from our expansive investment platform.

Ongoing Assessment
In coordination with your other advisors, we can conduct ongoing reviews and comprehensive reporting to ensure that your strategy adapts to changing financial and family needs.
