Kantox Provides Citi’s Commercial Bank with Enhanced FX Payments Connectivity for Corporate Clients in the United States

Published 

London – Kantox announced today that it is providing Citi’s Commercial Bank with a seamless user experience for its foreign exchange (FX) clients in the United States through a customised solution that connects directly to Citi’s foreign currency payments platform.

The software – part of Citi’s Dynamic Management Foreign Exchange (“DMFX”) initiative – also provides treasury automation for local and cross-border payments in multiple currencies for corporate and commercial bank clients.

“As our clients’ treasury needs continue to rapidly evolve, Citi is always looking to develop client-focused solutions that are thoughtful and forward-thinking to deliver on what clients crave in their day-to-day operations,” said Citi’s Head of U.S. Commercial FX & Derivative Sales, Kyle Falconi. “We look forward to offering our clients a seamless, technology-based FX and payments solution with the support of the Kantox team.”

Kantox’s CEO, Philippe Gelis, added, “Citi is tech-minded and we see this partnership as further confirmation of a global trend of cooperation between banks and fintechs. Kantox is pleased to provide Citi with solutions that help to automate, ease IT burden and remove friction from the client experience. We look forward to working together.”

As part of the relationship, Citi and Kantox expect to expand the FX automation services available to Citi’s corporate and commercial bank customers. Future offerings may include Kantox’s micro-hedging technology, Dynamic Hedging, which was recently named Best Risk Management Solution at the Treasury Management International Awards for Innovation and Excellence.

The software, which was developed as part of Citi’s D10X program, is currently being pilot-tested with a select group of Citi’s commercial clients in the United States, with plans to roll out the solution to a wider audience in 2020.
