Online Access

Many companies, no matter the size, deal with foreign currencies when they are active beyond their borders or when they import and export products and services.  ForXchange by BCGE is an innovative solution adapted to corporate transactions.  Companies have access to real time interbank liquidity and have it delivered on their accounts under BCGE conditions.


A competitive platform

ForXchange by BCGE processes the most widely traded currency pairs on the foreign exchange market, including the Swiss franc, the euro, the dollar (US and Canadian), the pound sterling and the Japanese yen, as well as precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, palladium). Orders are executed in real time and are immediately posted to your accounts.  With ForXchange, you benefit from one of the best current exchange rates depending on the transaction and your user profile. 

Real-time execution of your spot, forward and swap transactions

Exchange rates are the result of the simultaneous purchase and sale of two separate currencies called "currency pairs". They reflect the economic context, interest rate developments, international trade and speculative activity. Real-time access to market exchange rates allows you to take advantage of their variations. You can also protect yourself against possible adverse price movements by hedging.  This helps you to manage your exchange rate risks more easily.

Posted directly to your BCGE account

As opposed to online brokers, BCGE allows you to post your foreign exchange transactions directly to your BCGE accounts. To buy or sell one currency against another, you simply need to have accounts in each of these currencies with our bank. You can use the available amounts (cash and credit) to carry out your transactions.  In addition, you instantly have an overview of your spot transactions from your online solutions in Netbanking. 

Autonomy, speed and flexibility

Easy to use, the platform is modular and adapted to your needs; in order to view the best offered exchange rates and buy the underlying liquidity, you just select the currency pair, the amount and the delivery date that concerns you.

You can access ForXchange directly from your client area integrated into your Netbanking. You only need to log in once and there is no need for any installations. The ForXchange environment can also be shared between several Netbanking users.
The platform provides powerful and customisable transaction tracking. In addition, it offers an optimised interface and easier navigation.
