A SWIFT code (also known as a BIC or Bank Identifier Code) is a unique identification code used to identify a specific bank or financial institution in international transactions. It stands for “Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication.” SWIFT codes are a standardized format of Bank Identifier Codes approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
SWIFT codes play a crucial role in facilitating international money transfers and communication between financial institutions. They ensure that the funds are directed to the correct bank and branch during cross-border transactions. Each SWIFT code consists of either 8 or 11 characters and is structured as follows:
– The first four letters represent the bank’s name or abbreviation.
– The following two letters represent the country where the bank is located.
– The next two letters or digits represent the city or location of the bank’s main office.
– The last three letters (optional) represent the branch or specific department.
For example, in the SWIFT code “SCBLAEADXXX”:
– “SCBL” indicates Standard Chartered Bank.
– “AE” represents the United Arab Emirates (country code).
– “AD” represents Abu Dhabi (location code).
– “XXX” is an optional branch code or location identifier.
SWIFT codes are widely used in international banking and financial transactions, such as wire transfers, money transfers, and other cross-border operations.
