  • Currency Accounts

    If you have receipts and payments in the same (non-Euro) currency, this option may be worth considering.

  • Unsecured Foreign Exchange Fund

    Bank of Ireland has launched a new foreign exchange facility to make it easier for our customers to protect their business from the risks of currency market volatility.

    We’re making the process simpler, and more accessible, with our new easy access foreign exchange facility.

    The result? You can fix your foreign exchange exposure at competitive market rates on the day you agree a contract with your customer or supplier by way of a Forward Contract. This protects your profit margins from adverse currency movements. It’s one of the ways we can help your business to thrive internationally.
