securities and other [cash] investments
Explanation: DON'T use the word 'placements', which in English usually describes the *reverse* of investments (i.e., the placing of the instruments with investors).
Securities *are* investments from the holder's standpoint, which is why you should add 'other'. The other investments are most probably CDs (time deposits), as a05 suggests, but could include holdings of money-market funds. In any case, the French does not say they are necessarily bank deposits.
