The new platform is available for both conventional and Shariah-compliant banking customers. It will allow them to execute transactions during and beyond the bank’s working hours and benefit from liquidity across all time zones.

NBFX can serve as a platform for executing foreign exchange and precious metal transactions. It reportedly provides users with a tailored experience based on their needs with instant and easy execution of FX trades, order management and readily available transaction history.

Unique to NBFX is the possibility for customers to execute FX Non-Deliverable Forwards (NDFs) and FX Time Options on a 24/5 basis, according to news agency WAM.

“This unique platform ensures that customers are able to customise it according to their preferences, have access to the most competitive price execution, and tap into valuable data and insights to help guide their decisions,” said Vince Cook, NBF’s CEO.

“In addition, they have the backing of a team of experts across treasury, trading and structuring to help them navigate market changes and hedge underlying risks. Looking ahead, we have plans to expand the scope of NBFX to cater to customers’ wider requirements across energy, base metals and soft commodities.”
