New Business Intelligence offering – SWIFT Scope

There is a strong and growing demand in the banking industry for detailed data on financial transactions, especially payments. This information is required for a number of reasons such as, customer behaviour analysis and regulatory reporting. However, Financial Institutions are facing difficulties to consolidate all their transactional flows at the right granular level and right frequency.  

To cater to these needs, SWIFT is launching SWIFT Scope, a modular portfolio of "on customer premises" business intelligence solutions. SWIFT Scope complements our existing Watch offering by providing business dashboards, reports and moreover analysis of consolidated transactional and private data.  SWIFT Scope stores all data on customer premises and ensures full customer control of any private data.

To give you a flavour of what's to come, here are a few user case examples for SWIFT Scope:

  • Global Transaction Banks needing consolidated storage and analysis of transactions

Have you already subscribed to our monthly RMB Tracker?

SWIFT's November RMB Tracker shows that 15 more countries are now using the RMB for more than 10% of their payments value with China and Hong Kong compared to April 2013. In total, 50 countries out of the 161 that exchanged payments with China and Hong Kong in October 2014 have crossed this threshold. The 10% milestone, also known as "crossing the RMB River", is a threshold set by SWIFT to measure the weight of RMB payments value with Hong Kong and China compared to other currencies. It is an indication of countries that "cross the River" and their level of adoption of the RMB.

This RMB Tracker provides key statistics to understand the progress made in China's Renminbi (RMB) towards becoming an international currency.

Don't hesitate to register to our free monthly SWIFT RMB Tracker and consult past RMB Trackers or our overall BI offering.

On top of the RMB Tracker, we offer RMB Market Insights. This report is designed as a mean to track in detail and follow the growth of RMB and its impact on the financial industry as a whole. The report will help identifying the top currencies including their growth across various markets as well as the top countries using RMB across all these markets. In addition, an analysis of specific message types containing RMB transactions is included, showing the number of transactions, as well as transaction value and activity share versus total SWIFT.
