Multicurrency Accounts

Multicurrency accounts provide you with the flexibility to maintain an FDIC-insured operating account denominated in foreign currency, enabling your company to send and receive foreign exchange wires while maintaining balances in foreign currency. Opening an MCA eliminates the costly expense of establishing a relationship with a foreign bank.
