SWIFT Traffic Profile

Independent profiling of your SWIFT traffic activity

Protect yourself - know your customer’s customer

Transactions involving high-risk or sanctioned territories can put your business at risk. But knowing which connections might cause you problems isn’t easy.

The SWIFT Traffic Profile highlights exposures to high-risk or sanctioned territories in your institution’s global correspondent network - including those resulting from your correspondents’ downstream activity with their counterparties.

It’s independent, factual data derived from SWIFT’s unique global aggregated message traffic, updated quarterly to help you pinpoint compliance risks.

By sharing data, you can provide added transparency and evidence of compliance to your correspondents, improve the efficiency of your customer due diligence enquiries, and see at a glance whether they or their customers might be putting you at risk.
