The SWIFT Codes were introduced in 1973, as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication was established. They are a standardized format of BIC - Bank Identifier Codes.


The company started in a 40 square meters office in Brussels with 239 members in 15 countries. The purpose is to facilitate the funds transfer between banks and financial institutions. Today, the network has more than 10 thousand members and it continuously increasing. Each participant is asigned a SWIFT code to easily identify the institution in the process of exchanging messages or during money transfer. The code was standardised as ISO 9362 by the International Organization for Standardization and states that the code is consisting of 8 or 11 characters as following:

  • The first 4 letters are the bank or financial institution code;
  • Next 2 letters provide the ISO 3166-1 alpha 2 country code;
  • Next 2 letters or digits are the location code;
  • Last 3 characters can be letters and digits. XXX is used for the main office.
