We make compliance with SWIFT initiatives less costly and burdensome. We can help you understand your obligations, identify potential business impacts, and ensure compliance under initiatives such as SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme, Global Payments Initiative (GPI) and ISO20022, as well as others that will inevitably arise.
SWIFT Customer Security Programme (CSP). SWIFT requires all members with active BIC codes to annually self-attest that they are meeting a range of security controls (collectively referred to as the “Customer Security Controls Framework”, or CSCF) to protect the community from the growing threat of cyber-attacks and breaches. StoneX is intimately familiar with SWIFT’s range of security requirements and can assist customers with the successful implementation of these controls.
CSP Independent Assessment. In addition to complying with the CSCF, as from 2021 all SWIFT members must also perform an annual Independent Assessment on this activity in order to ensure that the necessary security controls are being correctly implemented and followed. StoneX Technology Services is listed in SWIFT’s directory of “Cyber Security Service Providers” deemed as having the relevant cyber security and SWIFT expertise necessary to perform an external assessment, which means we can provide this service to our customers.
GPI (Global Payments Initiative). Dubbed by SWIFT as “the new norm in cross-border payments”, SWIFT GPI (Global Payments Initiative) is a new subscription service that ensures international payments instructed through SWIFT meet the need for speed, traceability and transparency. By subscribing to the full GPI service, members can offer a faster payment experience to their customers, enjoy full end-to-end tracking of payments across the SWIFT network and clearly view any bank fees and foreign exchange rates charges along the journey. Contact us for more information and to discuss how GPI could benefit your organization.
Universal Confirmations. Introduced by SWIFT in November 2020, ‘Universal Confirmations’ is part of GPI and requires all SWIFT members receiving payment messages (FIN MT103’s) to mandatorily confirm the status of these payments to a centralised ‘tracker’. Payments can be tracked manually using a web browser (provided by SWIFT), or customers can automate this process in several ways. Contact us for more information and to discuss how StoneX could assist your organization comply with this requirement in an automated and seamless fashion.
ISO20022. By November 2025, all SWIFT members engaging in cross-border payments and/or account reporting activity will be expected to migrate from the existing SWIFT FIN standards to new ISO20022 standards. SWIFT members using FIN MT1-series, MT2-series and MT9-series messages will be impacted by this migration. ISO20022 goes Live in November 2022 and a ‘co-existence period’, during which members will be able to use both FIN and ISO, will run until November 2025 at which point FIN MTs will be decommissioned. Contact StoneX for more information and to discuss how we can help you navigate this migration project in a way which maximizes business opportunity and minimizes operational disruption.
