INTL FCStone Inc. (NASDAQ: INTL) has announced that its London-based subsidiary, INTL FCStone Ltd’s Global Payments Division (GPD), has enhanced its proprietary FXecute global payments technology platform with the addition of streamlined functionality that bridges its clients’ foreign exchange and payments services.
FXecute is INTL FCStone Ltd’s proprietary global payments platform that provides clients with a one-stop solution for making payments in more than 175 countries. Clients have access to live currency market rates, and can seamlessly execute payments in more than 140 currencies, which includes the world’s roughly 90 exotic currencies used in the developing world.
The system also provides integration solutions via GPD’s Web Services API which clients can use to retrieve rates and execute trades.
Additionally, FXecute now enables clients to make payments using the local ACH system, ensuring seamless and less expensive payments while eliminating execution gridlocks. GPD has onboarded a multitude of its correspondent bank partners in developing countries for ACH functionality in order to provide uninterrupted payment delivery in local currency for those clients sending money to these markets.
