Case Study

Automated treasury at TravelEssence

TravelEssence is a travel agency that develops customized trips to Australia and New Zealand. Every trip they create is unique, in fifteen years there has not been one trip that was the same.

When the client agrees with the trip proposal, TravelEssence has to make the payments in foreign currency. With the FX Trade API, ABN AMRO has created a new system that allows TravelEssence to link to ABN AMRO’s banking system to fully automate the booking of these transactions. With it, the company hedges themselves against the currency risk.
