Fiserv joins the Swift Partner Programme

Wednesday 4 October 2023 15:28 CET | News

Global provider of payments and financial services technology Fiserv has joined the Swift Partner Programme as a Platform Partner.


As part of the Swift Partner Programme, Fiserv will reportedly facilitate the connectivity to Swift APIs and enhance support for Swift GPI (Global Payments Initiative) for Fiserv client financial institutions.

As outlined in the official press release, the Swift API connectivity boosts the end-to-end transparency for cross-border payments in real time and facilitates the process of checking payment statuses for Fiserv client banks. 

By leveraging the reach of the Swift system and Fiserv’s footprint, this collaboration is anticipated to enable more financial institutions to access cross-border payments capabilities.

Fiserv is not the sole payments provider that joined the Swift Partner Programme in 2023, as earlier this year, the IBM Payments Centre announced a similar decision  – in a bid to collaborate with Swift members.
