SWIFT is a member-owned cooperative that provides the communications platform, products and services to connect more than 10,000 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 210 countries. SWIFT enables its users to exchange automated, standardised financial information securely and reliably, thereby lowering costs, reducing operational risk and eliminating operational inefficiencies. SWIFT also brings the financial community together to work collaboratively to shape market practice, define standards and debate issues of mutual interest.
SWIFT has a strong presence in the investment funds industry and provides comprehensive coverage throughout the funds transactional lifecycle facilitating straight-through-processing (STP) in funds as well as securities, treasury and payments. SWIFT’s value proposition to the funds industry includes the launch of comprehensive fund messaging standards, allowing fund platforms, investment managers, distributors, and administrators to reduce operational costs and risks, whilst enhancing scalability and service levels.
Fund platforms have been instrumental in the growth of the industry and have early on recognized the value of SWIFT. From cross-border to domestic, over 200 distribution platforms in the retail, institutional, pension and money market space have been relying on SWIFT to support their business models in the various regions of the world.
SWIFT supports the Fund Platform Group in view of addressing the ever increasing complexity of the funds industry. SWIFT provides funds platforms worldwide appropriate services in line with best practice implementation and promotes the usage of international standards in funds processing.
