Price discovery is the process by which market participants obtain information about the prices at which counterparties are willing to buy or sell specific financial instruments or other assets.

For major transactions it is often facilitated by a professional adviser or intermediary.

Centralising FX price discovery
"Let's say a corporate has gone through all the necessary steps... and now has a multibank panel at its disposal for FX execution.

Multibank FX platforms and fintech FX solutions - Eric Huttman, CEO of MillTechFX - The Treasurer online, October 2021
