"... The Sugeval is considering the possibility of liquidation (accreditation of money) of this new portfolio not being the next business day (T + 1) in which the transaction takes place, but that the timeframe be extended to three business days (T + 3). In addition, the average term for this instrument will be 180 days, double the period required for investment in money market funds (90 days) ".

"... 'Investors, whether physical or legal, who do not require immediate liquidity and prefer not to utlise this option in order to get more yield and term to maturity, will be seeking out this fund. It will also be a complementary portfolio that will allow diversification of investment funds," said Vladimir Sequeira, manager of Acobo Vista".
