Global Treasury: Market & infrastructure coverage

Through Airwallex's embedded finance platform, you may deliver financial capabilities to your customers in a very wide range of markets, leveraging Airwallex's extensive license coverage, market-leading network of financial rails, as well as our localised Operations, Legal and Compliance teams.

Connected accounts coverage

The below markets are the ones where you may onboard connected accounts as part of the Global Treasury Proposition. Creating connected accounts for your customers is not always required. This will be assessed by Airwallex based on the planned funds flow on your Platform, and other local regulatory constraints.

The connected account country refers to the country of the business's registration address.

FX coverage

Airwallex currently has the capability to transact in nearly 1,000 currency pairs across 64 currencies - a capability that is constantly improving. Some of the pairs are freely traded which means we are able to price and execute on both sides of the trade, whereas pairs that contain a currency with additional constraints are considered exotic currency pairs.

You can use supported currencies API to get a list of currencies you can buy or sell.

Buy and sell amounts are rounded to the nearest unit based on a currency's decimals defined by ISO 4217 . We use the HALF_EVEN rounding mode .

The current list of currencies we support include:
