Pyramis Global Advisors, a subsidiary of Fidelity Investments, has launched a global institutional cash services business. The unit will be headed by the newly-hired Peter Knight, who was most recently a consultant to the global mutual fund industry.

Those solutions, which will deal mostly in major currencies, will be geared toward global institutional clients, such as corporate and public defined-benefit plans and sovereign wealth funds, according to the Smithfield, Rhode Island-based firm.
