ABOUT US

IEFX is an FX and International Payments Platform developed for Irish companies. Many Irish companies receive payments in currencies other than Euro and need to make payments to suppliers and other counterparties in currencies other than Euro.

IEFX was established to facilitate the needs of Irish companies in this regard, providing an alternative to the opaque and inefficient FX and International Payment services offered by the Irish banks.

IEFX has developed an established FX and International Payments Platform operated by a leading International fintech company, Ebury Partners UK Ltd.

Innovative

Spot and Forward FX
Our FX Platform allows clients to buy or sell currencies spot (for same day, next day or trade date plus 2 day settlement) or to trade on a given day for settlement up to 2 years in advance (margin payments will be required for this service).  By providing FX forward transactions of this type, IEFX can facilitate Irish firms in managing their ongoing FX needs into the future. Using these FX tools can allow IEFX and its dealers to work with each Irish client to formulate the most appropriate short, medium and long term FX plan and solutions in each particular client’s circumstances.

Multiple Payments to Multiple Beneficiaries
Our Platform processes single payments to individual beneficiaries or multiple payments to multiple beneficiaries in any one of 140 currencies. We can even process payments to hundreds of beneficiaries from the same account e.g. payroll services, dividend payments etc.  Our clients can download beneficiary account details in the form of a spreadsheet to our payments system and make payments to these large volumes of beneficiaries simultaneously.

Trade Finance
In addition to offering a leading FX and International Payments Platform, IEFX offers Trade Finance services to Irish companies:

The sole aim of our Trade Finance is to help businesses grow faster by financing trade.  In partnership with Ebury, we provide business funding for your supply chain by lending to Irish buyers and by providing accelerated, non-recourse cash payments to your suppliers.  Our facility can offer your business up to €1,000,000 for up to 150 days.

The majority of Trade Finance clients use the facility to finance imports from overseas.  With an active presence in many major trading economies worldwide, our knowledge and expertise means we can build bridges between buyer and seller, to create strong, profitable relationships.
