Swift Remittance:
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication ("SWIFT")
operates a worldwide financial messaging network which exchanges messages
between banks and other financial institutions. SWIFT also markets software and
services to financial institutions, much of it for use on the SWIFTNet Network, and
ISO 9362 bank identifier codes (BICs) are popularly known as "SWIFT codes".The
majority of international interbank messages use the SWIFT network. As of
September 2010, SWIFT linked more than 9,000 financial institutions in 209
countries and territories, who were exchanging an average of over 15 million
messages per day.
[1]
SWIFT transports financial messages in a highly secure way,
but does not hold accounts for its members and does not perform any form of
clearing or settlement.
SWIFT does not facilitate funds transfer, rather, it sends payment orders, which
must be settled via correspondent accounts that the institutions have with each
other. Each financial institution, to exchange banking transactions, must have a
banking relationship by either being a bank or affiliating itself with one (or more)
so as to enjoy those particular business features.
SWIFT is a cooperative society under Belgian law and it is owned by its member
financial institutions. SWIFT has offices around the world. SWIFT headquarters are
located in La Hulpe, Belgium, near Brussels. An average of 2.4 million messages,
with aggregate value of $2 trillion, were processed by SWIFT per day in 1995

system facilitates easy collection with NIL charges.But if the chq is found
fraudulent or forged, the correspondent bank can debit the nostro account
even after 1 year. This is the inherent risk in the method of collection.
