Delivering FX cost promises
"FX best execution offers many benefits to treasurers; most importantly cost reduction.
However, pursuing FX best execution can be extremely difficult for corporate treasurers, as it requires them to implement and manage multiple FX counterparty relationships simultaneously...

Corporates should seek out solutions that also incorporate transaction cost analysis (TCA).
TCA provides corporates with a transparent breakdown of FX costs across all their transactions as proof that a pre-agreed cost promise has been delivered.
TCA can also be shared with the CFO, board of directors or shareholders, as evidence of best practice."
