What is a SWIFT/BIC Code?

A SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) code, also known as a BIC (Bank Identifier Code), is a unique identifier code for banks and financial institutions globally. It helps them communicate securely and quickly when they need to send money to each other, especially for international transfers.

Another purpose of the SWIFT code is to reduce the operational risk when making transactions by setting a standard and minimizing the amount of transaction fee. Each bank has its own unique SWIFT code, which acts as an identifier, making sure the money goes to the right place. It's a bit like a postal code for banks!

Bank code A-Z

4 letters representing the bank. It usually looks like a shortened version of that bank's name.

2 characters made up of letters or numbers. It says where that bank's head office is.
