Bank of Ireland Global Markets, a unit of Bank of Ireland, has teamed up with British fintech firm WorldFirst to launch a new foreign exchange and international payments service for its US customers.
The new service, known as Bank of Ireland Global Payments, will include spot contracts, bulk payments, regular transfers and forward contracts.
The service will be rendered to US businesses, free of transfer fees.
