“StoneX Payments proudly services more than 80 bank customers across the US, EU, UK and APAC regions, including many of the world’s largest and systemically important banks, offering 140+ currencies across 180 countries.”

NatWest has tapped StoneX to enhance its international payment capabilities and provide its clients with seamless cross-border FX services.

The Payments division of StoneX (StoneX Payments) will supply NatWest with third-party delivery and international FX payment services, allowing the bank’s corporate clients to transfer money to more nations with ease.

StoneX Payments’ network and infrastructure will play a central role

This partnership will support cross-border payments and expand local payment reach in an additional set of 10 currencies, providing access to customers in markets the bank had not previously serviced. StoneX’s API-driven financial institution platform and extensive network of over 350 correspondent banks will be leveraged.

StoneX Payments’ proprietary network and infrastructure will play a central role in the collaboration, ensuring NatWest customers have access to competitive foreign exchange rates and a seamless payment experience. StoneX Payments’ offering to NatWest includes clarity at the inception of the payment transaction regarding the precise amount of funds to be delivered to their desired destination.

StoneX Payments’ partnership with NatWest represents the StoneX Payments’ commitment to providing competitively priced, transparent, and highly scalable payment solutions for businesses, financial institutions, and international development organizations worldwide. The collaboration is expected to simplify cross-border transactions, reduce costs, and make it easier for NatWest commercial customers to make more international payments in Bankline.
