Alliance Lite2

Your connection to the financial industry

Access the financial industry via the SWIFT Community Cloud

Alliance Lite2 is for corporates, banks and investment managers who want all the benefits of a cloud-based solution and prefer a direct SWIFT connection to their counterparties – whether that’s for processing 10,000 messages a day or a few transactions per month.

Using SWIFT for financial communications enables you to reach more than 10,800 financial institutions worldwide, benefiting from standardised messaging for payments, account statements, trade, foreign exchange, securities, investment funds and more. You can also combine multiple streams into a single channel, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Built, hosted and operated by SWIFT, Alliance Lite2 has been designed to suit the varying cloud connectivity needs of SWIFT customers. It can be used for manual and automated message exchange with additional options such as back-office integration to make the SWIFT Community Cloud a truly end-to-end solution.
