Course Description



Keeping up with global FX markets requires responsive systems that can provide almost instantaneous execution. As well, FX risk is an enterprise-wide management challenge. Many legacy systems are often in silos and do not cover FX products, loans/deposits and short-term security finance in one integrated environment that can show the true risk. Globally, liquidity management has become a market based on advanced technology, requiring an organization’s liquidity management to run on an advanced solution.
