China Construction Bank Corporation (CCB) has become a customer for EBS’s Spot and Prime services. As the latest Asian bank to sign up as both an EBS Spot and EBS Prime customer, the benefits to CCB include access to higher levels of liquidity and thus optimum prices in the most actively traded global currencies – the US dollar, Japanese yen, euro and Swiss franc. “Banks in China understand the need to join a global FX platform,” explained KC Lam, head of sales Asia Pacific, EBS. “EBS’ clients generate increased revenues through FX trading as they are able to directly enter the interbank FX market to access tighter pricing and global liquidity. China and its banks are an important part of our global offering.”
