What bank details are needed to transfer money internationally?

The information you’ll need to pay money abroad will differ depending on the country to which you make the payment. However, the majority of overseas payments typically require a combination of the following:

  • Name of the account holder
  • Account number
  • BIC SWIFT code
  • IBAN/Alternative country banking code


Your exchange options when sending payments abroad

We exchange money for your overseas payment with a spot contract, ensuring that we convert your funds at that time with the present exchange rate.

However, you may also secure a forward contract for your payment should you need to make a payment in the near future and wish to take advantage of a favourable rate. This contract ensures you receive the same rate, and may require a deposit, however locks in a prevailing exchange rate for your future trade.
