Rabobank and SWIFT: worldwide standard in exchanging financial data

SWIFT for corporates enables corporates to exchange financial information (payments, securities, reporting) with all their financial institutions. A multibank connection is made to one highly secure, standardized communication platform, as opposed to multiple connections. SWIFT is the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 10,000 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 212 countries trust it every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages.

Rabobank offers corporates using SWIFT a global visibility on their cash. SWIFT enables them to manage risks, reduce costs and also speed up transaction processing times sustainably.
