A Nexus payment flows through accounts held by an FX Provider in both the Source UPS and Destination UPS. These accounts need to be defined in the pacs.008 so that both UPSs know which accounts to debit and credit.
In the pacs.008, ISO 20022 terminology is used:
  • Each Settlement Account Provider is defined as an Intermediary Agent
  • The FXP's account at the SAP is defined as an Intermediary Agent Account
For any specific quote, the Intermediary Agents (ie the FXP’s accounts) can be retrieved from Nexus by the GET /intermediaryagents/ API operation with the ID of the preferred quote:
