SWIFT Traffic Profile

Independent profiling of your SWIFT traffic activity

Protect your business by knowing 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.

Now there’s a way. The SWIFT Traffic Profile highlights exposures to high-risk or sanctioned territories in your institution’s global correspondent network - including indirect exposure 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.

If you’re a user of The KYC Registry, your institution can subscribe to the SWIFT Traffic Profile and, if you choose to, share it with your correspondents via the Registry.   

By sharing your aggregate and country-level data, you can provide added transparency and evidence of compliance to your correspondents and improve the efficiency of your customer due diligence enquiries.  

And, by requesting and reviewing your counterparty’s SWIFT Traffic Profile, you can see at a glance whether they or their customers might be putting you at risk.
