Deutsche Bank launches FX4Cash in China and India

Deutsche Bank has launched its cross-currency payments solution, FX4Cash, for corporate clients in China and India. The solution allows the bank’s clients access to global currencies via a single platform and gives them the added ability to manage cross-border and cross-currency payments through one base account.

“By eliminating the need to maintain multiple foreign currency accounts, our corporate clients in China and India can now achieve even greater efficiencies in treasury management by reducing idle balances and FX (foreign exchange) exposure,” said Kefei Chang, Asia-Pacific head of FX4Cash, in a statement.

According to Chang, the platform “enables an end-to-end process flow and introduces efficiency, automation and transparency in price and information into what had been a relatively manual and error-prone process”.
