Standard Chartered Bank has been awarded the SWIFT Bank Readiness Certification. This certification reiterates the bank’s commitment to making it easier for clients to join SWIFT and help them improve their working capital management.
With the visibility of bank readiness being one of the barriers to SWIFT adoption, Standard Chartered proactively took a client-centric approach and actively collaborated with SWIFT and other global banks to develop a certification programme that would assist corporates to compare the SWIFT capabilities of their banking partners.
Elie Lasker, head of corporate market, SWIFT said: “SWIFT Bank Readiness Certification programme is a significant step towards providing corporates with transparency around the SWIFT capabilities of their banks. Standard Chartered has played a key role in voicing client feedback and actively collaborated with SWIFT to make this programme happen. Its addition to the ‘bank ready’ list recognises its client centric approach and ongoing commitment to improving corporate access over SWIFT.”
