Shareholder - Submember
As a Swift shareholder you may register branches or subsidiaries as ‘Sub-Members’. At any moment in time you can check whether you have Sub-member(s)(1) registered using this link.
It is of most importance that the shareholder validates the correctness of the data prior for the three-yearly Swift share re-allocation(2) exercise during which the financial contribution for network based services of the Sub-members will be included in the contribution of the direct parent - Swift shareholder(3).
The data as currently registered with Swift can be viewed here. If the information is not correct and needs correction please use the ‘Report a Change in Group Structure’ form available from the ordering pages.
