Significant changes are coming to SWIFT MT 700 series for commercial LCs (in November 2018) and the MT 760 series for guarantees & standbys (in November 2019). Will bankers and bank systems be ready?

More details on the forthcoming SWIFT MT 700 series changes for trade finance in the upcoming July/August double issue of Documentary Credit World. If you’re not yet a subscriber, visit the DCW webpage to request a trial issue or register today!
