You have apparently come across a situation where you were required to find a SWIFT code of your bank since the internet banking system needed you to do so while making an international fund transfer.
This is because the majority of banks and financial corporations in the world are parts of the SWIFT network. This is because the network is in charge of fund transfer and communications between financial and non-financial companies across the globe.
The SWIFT code is typically consisting of eight different letters where it states the name of the bank, the country where the bank is located, and the location where the head office is.
Take, for example, you wish to transfer some money to your parent’s Bank of America account in Malaysia then the SWIFT code you will need to input in the transaction details is BOFAMY2X. These eight letters denote the name of the bank, which is Bank of America, the country, and the location of the head office, which is in Kuala Lumpur.
