SWIFTRef: Where to find accurate SWIFT BICs, LEIs, CHIPS, CNAPS, IFSC-codes and more

Access to high-quality reference data and financial information is absolutely critical for any financial institution.
Accurate reference data is a pre-requisite for hassle-free international and domestic payments while financial information provides the necessary insights for any counterparty due diligence.

However… collecting and permanently maintaining payments reference data and financial information about correspondents and companies worldwide is typically a very demanding and costly task for an individual financial institution.

As the ISO-registration authority for BICs, LEIs and IBAN-formats, SWIFT decided to take up the challenge.

If you are eager to find out how we can make your business easier, then register today for a free webinar on one of the dates.
A live demo of our SWIFTRef online service will be part of the webinar.
