Swift Compatible Application
What is covered?
The Swift Compatible Application programme is available for applications connecting to Swift via Swift Alliance Access for all Swift-related market segments. Each category comes with a specific set of criteria, designed to reflect the capability of an application to provide interoperability with a Swift environment. Criteria are typically re-evaluated every year.
You will frequently find Swift Compatible listed as a requirement in requests for proposal for fintech applications, as it provides a higher comfort level to customers seeking Swift interoperability.
