FiREapps, a leading provider of FX exposure management solutions complements Deutsche Bank’s expertise in risk management and FX execution services and this partnership will add to Deutsche Bank’s comprehensive suite of electronic FX management solutions.

“In our on-going conversations with our corporate clients, a common challenge and frustration voiced by CFOs and Treasurers is the difficulty of gaining a complete and timely understanding of their FX exposure”, said Fabio Madar, Global Head of Corporate Foreign Exchange Sales. “FiREapps addresses this challenge head on by automating the aggregation of exposure data and providing robust analytics to help CFOs and Treasurers make rapid, informed and cost effective currency risk management decisions.”

This innovative offering provided us access to best-in-class technology and expertise that otherwise would have been difficult for us to incorporate into our plans and budgets.” Sassano goes on to say,” Wyndham has measured benefits in terms of improved FX hedge score card metrics and through a more refined and analytical hedging approach.”

Deutsche Bank is once again showing why it is the top corporate FX bank as it is the first bank to offer this type of service to its clients and we are excited to partner with them to continue this tradition of market leadership.”
