FXC Intelligence: The industry standard for global payments data

The global payments market is enormous, constantly growing and full of opportunity for banks and financial services businesses. However, the sheer size of this market also makes it incredibly complex, meaning it can be difficult for those businesses to identify a clear path to profit. 

Banks and fintechs looking to enter new markets, adapt their pricing or launch new cross-border products need a firm grasp of the underlying data behind global payments. But with thousands of providers worldwide spanning tens of thousands of payment corridors, tracking how pricing and flows change across regions and competitors can be a daunting task to take on alone.

By providing accurate, timely data, FXC Intelligence helps global payments businesses to navigate this complex industry, understand their competitors and take action to boost their bottom line. Since 2015, we’ve been building the world’s most comprehensive FX pricing dataset specifically focused on global payments, spanning more than 25,000 corridors, 1,500 providers and 110 countries. Some of the world’s biggest financial institutions use our data to streamline decision-making, develop new strategies and, ultimately, boost profitability.
