Swift is the way the world moves value. We do this every single instant of every single day, right across the world. No other organisation can address the scale, precision, pace and trust that this demands.

Swift is unique. We were established to find a better way for the global financial community to move value – a reliable, safe and secure approach that the community can trust, completely. We have constantly evolved in an ever-changing landscape, without undermining that trust. Nearly five decades on, our vibrant community reflects the complexity and diversity of the financial ecosystem.

Today, goods and services move more quickly and across greater distances than ever before, so value needs to move further and faster too. Our vision is for a world in which payments are not only trusted but instant. We innovate tirelessly, test exhaustively, then implement fast. In a connected and challenging era, our approach has never been more relevant. There’s no other organisation like us anywhere in the world. Without us the world would be a very different place. We’re trusted every instant.
