Business Problem

One of the largest banks in the US needed fluid understanding of its FX pricing. If you are an FX Trading specialist managing multiple clients, it can become easy to lose track of the original price plan issued for each client. In the competitive world of banking it is imperative that a front runner bank should ensure that their pricing per client is as accurate as possible not just to monitor revenue concerning spread but for the sake of their clients

The key stakeholder at the bank was trying to ensure that all their clients within FX sales & trading were being priced accurately in order to save revenue as well as upholding the responsibility of ensuring that their clients where being priced fairly and accurately.
