How to set up multi-currency accounts

Designed for an international business, our multi-currency accounts solutions make it easy for you to manage money in up to 15 different currencies. This product provides an efficient and cost-effective method of cash management across multiple currencies.

Multiple currency current accounts can be opened in any of 15 currencies. You can transfer funds between the different currencies and have an ability to determine exchange rates for future invoices to be paid in a particular currency. The payment of goods in a specific currency is therefore fixed.
