Crédito Agrícola and Ebury signed a partnership that will allow the bank’s corporate clients to carry out foreign currency exchange and cross border transactions completely online.
The partnership is part of the CA group’s growth and evolution strategy, which aims to continually offer more high quality digital services to corporate customers.
The Portuguese bank’s corporate clients who access Ebury’s services will be able to trade in more than 130 currencies at more competitive rates. This offering is aimed at the wide variety of companies that carry out, or have the potential to carry out, international business operations relating to the import and export of goods.
“This partnership is in line with CA Group’s innovation strategy, offering its customers a service that helps businesses mitigate risks arising from international trade.”, Said Licínio Pina, President of the CA Group.
