- Banks such as HSBC have invested heavily in FX innovation at both a strategic and operational level. FX payments are a key element of this innovation to support a variety of business cases and industries.
- Innovative FX payment solutions could enable treasurers to reduce risk and cost, but also to support commercial opportunities such as providing local currency pricing to customers.
- As treasurers focus on new ways to add value to the enterprise, HSBC’s FX payment solutions could enable them to support the business in promoting innovative sales and purchasing strategies to gain competitive advantage.
