Send reliable wire transfers in any currency
When it comes to international transactions, banks’ unreliable service delays foreign currency payments and complicates account reconciliation.
iBanFirst lets you open accounts in over 30 currencies, with personalised IBANs that guarantee the quality of execution and the security of transactions. You manage and fully control all money transfers and FX operations from the same modern web interface.
Reduce exposure to foreign
Foreign currency investments expose you to FX market volatility between deal stages. iBanFirst offers foreign currency hedging solutions with various durations and degrees of flexibility to reduce execution risk and match the constraints of each transaction. After the closing, you can hedge the underlying asset for the lifespan of the investment to mitigate risks and enhance value realisation.
Get competitive and transparent rates
Many international payments generate high fees and unfair foreign exchange commissions - sometimes hidden in the small print of bank brochures and charged after the fact. This negatively impacts the total return of your fund.
iBanFirst provides real-time instant FX payments at competitive rates, with a transparent and firm pricing. You regain control of your international payments.
Aggregate all accounts from your funds
In addition to your iBanFirst currency accounts, you can aggregate accounts opened at other banks through iBanFirst's AISP accreditation.
This makes it easy to consolidate and review all the accounts of the investment vehicles you manage through a single view.
