As the leading provider of trading and analysis platforms for foreign exchange markets, we are honored to be entrusted by UnionBank. We have been present in the Philippines for over 70 yearsand the country has great potential to become a leading Asian financial centre. As the first local bank to adopt Refinitiv’s ET system, UnionBank will have access to an efficient and digitized FX trading platform to ensure its nationwide branch network is more connected, enabling the on-going growth of its FX business. We look forward to deepening our partnership along UnionBank’s FX digital journal,” said Luke Elliott, Director of Trading for Asia Pacific at Refinitiv.
