ibanq is a multi-currency, virtual IBAN account that’s integrated directly into the IFX Payments foreign exchange services and global payments network. That means clients can manage, maintain, and distribute funds in up to 38 currencies from one single account.

IFX Payments developed a virtual IBAN solution so that firms can work with global business funds the same way they would with a regular bank account. Virtual IBANs enable businesses to segregate remittance flows with 100% accuracy and without the need for reconciliation via a master account. So you can be confident knowing it’s safe and simple for both you and your customer.

The ‘ibanq’ virtual IBAN solution by IFX Payments has gained recognition for its smooth integration, efficiency, and convenience. Thanks to the Canadian FMSB license acquisition, IFX Payments can now expand the advantages of ‘ibanq’ to Canadian enterprises, streamlining their international transactions and providing a versatile tool to simplify their financial processes.

Will Marwick, CEO of IFX Payments, said: “This license represents our dedication to expanding the geographical reach of our services and products and providing businesses with seamless and transparent digital cash management. Introducing our sophisticated virtual IBAN platform and first class cross-border payment and FX solutions to the Canadian market is an exciting milestone for the company and shows the dedication of the team and wider business in fulfilling our ambitious targets for the coming year.”
