With over 1,900 financial institutions now using the Renminbi (RMB) for payments with China and Hong Kong, the internationalisation of RMB is a strategically important topic for banks and FIs. How is your business affected? Where should you be targeting resources? Are you sufficiently informed? 

The RMB Tracker is a free monthly report from SWIFT Business Intelligence to help you track and understand how RMB is being used across geographies and financial sectors. Based on aggregated message data for RMB transactions available only from SWIFT, the tracker provides key statistics and market insights in an easy-to-access report.


Since 2010, SWIFT has actively supported its customers and the financial industry regarding RMB internationalisation through various publications and reports. The SWIFT RMB Tracker, issued on a monthly basis, provides the community with insights into the local conversation about China’s Renminbi and its global adoption.
