BNP Paribas has announced the expansion of its international payment system platform, which enables it to provide more foreign currency cash management solutions to its corporate clients. The Bank says that international payments can now be made safely and accurately in more than 30 funding currencies and over 130 currencies worldwide.
In addition, BNP Paribas has extended its same day/next day foreign currency offering and has developed solutions to help corporate treasurers integrate their fixed income and transaction banking business, in order to more efficiently manage their foreign currency deals. More advanced international payment options are now available through all conventional BNP Paribas e-banking channels, integrating foreign currency deals into international payment instructions.
These new solutions, which bring together BNP Paribas’ Fixed Income and Cash Management expertise, are available for corporate treasurers holding an account in the majority of European countries where BNP Paribas is present via its ‘One Bank for Corporates’ network.
