What’s a SWIFT Code?

A SWIFT code, which is also known as a Business Identifier Code (BIC), is an international bank code that’s used to identify individual banks and financial institutions all over the world. The SWIFT code contains important information about the bank, including where a bank is located. If you’re sending or receiving an international wire transfer at ANZ, you’ll need to know the correct SWIFT code.²

What’s the difference between a SWIFT code, a BIC, an IBAN and a routing number?

SWIFT codes are used globally and identify specific banks. IBANs, which stands for International Bank Account Number, are used in the EU plus Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Hungary, and identifies individual accounts, not banks. Routing numbers are similar to SWIFT codes, but they only identify US banks, not institutions around the globe.

Do SWIFT codes change from branch to branch?

Yes, so use this tool to look up the correct SWIFT code for your ANZ branch. If you’re not sure which branch specific code to use, you can use the general code, which will work for all ANZ branches in New Zealand.
