Product Overview Why is The Currency Cloud Different? Traditional Supplier Issues Brokerage Relationship Service Provider Relationship Whenever you hear “commission free” you know you are paying over the odds. Our relationship with customer is that of “technology supplier” rather than broker. Disparate Platforms and No Automation A Single End-to-End Automated Platform Multiple non-integrated platforms imposes technology risk and operational risk & cost overheads. The Currency Cloud platform reduces complexity, minimizes operational risk and reduces operational costs. Price Visibility 100% Price Transparency Lack of pricing transparency at the point of transaction (or post transaction) leading to “how do I know what I have paid? Is it fair?” Transparent and auditable currency and payment pricing known pre and post execution of transaction. Price Consistency 100% Consistent Pricing Prices rarely consistent and often depends on “what your supplier can get away with” at the point of transaction. Pricing agreed & contracted up front and configured in The Currency Cloud platform, so will always be consistent. Unhappy payment senders and beneficiaries Bypass Traditional Payment Networks Correspondent banks may take fees for transferring money so the incorrect amount ends up at the end beneficiary. You have no control over this, nor visibility of fees pre-transaction. 5 The Currency Cloud Approach The Currency Cloud uses a network of local bank accounts and payment providers to ensure the end beneficiary receives the full amount.
