Company news  |  July 8, 2021

London, 8 July 2021 - Kantox, a European fintech and leader in Currency Management Automation software, has announced an expansion of their partnership with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), the bank of the world's most innovative companies and their investors. Through this expansion, SVB’s corporate clients across the United States will now be able to leverage Kantox’s award-winning Kantox Dynamic Hedging® solution to automate the management of their currency risk.

By introducing the Kantox platform to SVB’s existing suite of specialized currency management solutions, SVB clients will be able to leverage a fully automated FX risk management solution that can help them to minimize risk, reduce costs and gain a competitive edge when operating across borders. The seamlessly integrated technology provides instant visibility into both macro and micro FX exposures and automatically offsets risk by booking, reporting and reconciling hedging transactions in real-time – all with minimal human intervention. 

The expanded partnership follows a successful launch in EMEA in which SVB’s UK corporate clients were provided access to Kantox’s solution.

Paul Jennings, Head of FX Advisory at Silicon Valley Bank says: “SVB innovation clients conduct business globally from inception and are always looking for improved efficiency in managing their FX risk and optimizing execution through automation. We’re pleased to partner with Kantox to provide our clients with an industry-leading solution to currency management.”

They understand the growing need for digital transformation within finance and view the innovation economy with a similar lens to that of our own. We're excited to jointly offer our award-winning Kantox Dynamic Hedging® solution to their US corporate clients, which will create greater efficiencies for treasurers and provide added value to SVB's current FX services”.
