The Bank Identifier Code (BIC), also known as the SWIFT address, is the code necessary to send automated international payments quickly and accurately to the banks concerned.
First Trust Bank's SWIFT Address/BIC is FTBKGB2B
Used on payment instructions together with the International Bank Account Number (IBAN) of the receiver's account, the BIC facilitates streamlined processing of international payments. It is a mandatory requirement for EU regulated payments.
Since 1st January, 2007, provision of the valid BIC and IBAN of the receiver's account is mandatory for all international Euro payments within EU member states, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland, regardless of value.
If you are in receipt of international payments, we recommend that you quote your IBAN and First Trust Bank's SWIFT BIC address (FTBKGB2B) on all your invoices to ensure that payments to you will be sent as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
SWIFT BIC codes consist of either 8 or 11 alphanumeric characters.
SWIFT addresses/BIC codes can be verified using the website detailed in the Related Information Section.
