With our Web-based Online Foreign Exchange trading system, you can lock in the best currency exchange and securely conduct a variety of international transactions.

  • Spot, forward and swap transactions to help you lock in favorable exchange rates
  • Account transfers
  • Wire transfers and third-party payments
  • Self-designed templates that save time on repetitive transactions
  • Multiple customized reports using our online report generator

Streamline your global accounts

If you have various accounts in banks overseas, SunTrust’s data exchange services can help you get account balances and transaction details from both your domestic and international accounts, all in one place. Our multi-bank reporting uses the SWIFT messaging system and MT 940 or MT 950 messages. You can download account information into a treasury workstation or other common formats for further analysis and reporting.

Invest or borrow at the best rates

You can make the most of favorable currency exchange rates and interest rates abroad. At SunTrust, you can invest $100,000 or more in a currency at that country’s interest rate for a minimum of one week. And if you need to get a loan in a foreign currency and at that country’s interest rate, we can help you save on interest rates and transaction fees.

Manage your foreign exchange risk

Using our tools, you can protect yourself from swings in currency rates. We can help you manage your exposure to foreign interest rate risk, using swaps. You can also use cross-currency swaps to hedge your foreign assets by swapping dollar debt into foreign debt. Or you can use interest rate swaps to convert floating-rate debt to fixed-rate debt or vice versa.

Canadian lockbox, currency delivery and more

If you’re traveling overseas, SunTrust can deliver most currencies and travelers cheques to you within one business day. If you’re doing business in Canada, you can cut both transfer fees and hassles by using SunTrust Canadian lockbox facilities, which let Canadian clients mail or transfer funds into one of several conveniently located Canadian correspondent banks we have partnered with to enable our customers to easily receive payments from Canadian customers.
