HSBC SWIFT for Corporates
With HSBC's position as of one of the largest SWIFT providers globally, HSBC SWIFT for Corporates enhances integration and streamlines processes by tapping directly into the SWIFT network. Traditionally used by banks to communicate with each other, SWIFT's global network is now available to corporate customers.
Since SWIFT introduced corporate connectivity in 2002, more than 800 corporates have connected to the service and these numbers continue to grow significantly every year. HSBC is one of the largest SWIFT providers today, sending and receiving millions of transactions a month on behalf of our customers.
Using HSBC SWIFT for Corporates to connect to HSBC and your other banking partners provides better visibility into your cash position, optimises management of your working capital and reduces costs and operational risk by eliminating the need for multiple interfaces.
Connecting to SWIFT
Our HSBC SWIFT for Corporates solution offers a number of user-friendly options to leverage the SWIFT network. SWIFT's messaging platform, SWIFTNet, is renowned for its security, reliability and availability. The key SWIFTNet messaging services used by corporates are FIN and FileAct.
- FIN is used primarily for liquidity and risk management purposes to create high-value or urgent payments (MT101), balance/transaction reporting (MT940) and market confirmations (MT300)
- Designed for mass payments and suitable for payment factories and financial shared service centres, FileAct is compatible with most common file formats, including EDIFACT, SWIFT, XML IS020022 and other local/proprietary options
