Bankers World Online

Global reference data and financial information for payments, regulatory reporting and due diligence

Bankers World Online, the online lookup directory

Bankers World Online is SWIFTRef's flagship service. Bankers World Online is an online lookup directory providing access to worldwide payments and correspondent banking reference data, as well as financial information for financial institutions and corporates worldwide.

Bankers World Online has been designed with payment professionals to meet the increasing need for up-to-date quality data.  Payments operations are more aware than ever that data is a critical component in their activities. Data quality is critical to save time, be efficient and to protect businesses.

Bankers World Online is used by international banks, domestic banks and corporates to meet today’s challenges and the industry’s future requirements. With no set-up required other than an internet connection, the intuitive interface helps you get to the information faster.

Information in Bankers World Online comes directly from the issuing source of that data. SWIFTRef has direct relationships with Central Banks, Banking Authorities, Banking Associations and Market infrastructures that issue clearing codes, meaning the data is as if you were connecting directly with that system.

We also collect information directly from banks that issue Standing Settlement Instructions (SSIs) so that your payment routing can be as accurate as possible.

And of course Bankers World Online comes from your trusted provider, SWIFT, the ISO Registration Authority for BIC and IBAN formats and Prime Issuer of LEIs.
