SWIFTNet services: MA-CUG and SCORE

  • SWIFTNet is a communications network linking Banks and Companies, enabling financial and transactional information to be circulated globally in a highly reliable, secure manner

An increasing number of companies operate at international level through “legal entities” present in several countries. The increasingly complex financial management of these companies requires the streamlining of treasury activities, and consequently calls for the optimisation of working capital.


SWIFT has made it possible to meet such requirements, by creating a secure, reliable, international network -SWIFTNet– which enables companies to communicate by standard means shared by all members of the network.

Intesa Sanpaolo, through SWIFTNet, offers its customers the opportunity to take advantage of a wide range of services and products, covering a broad variety of operating requirements.
