    FSB Publishes Updated Data on Correspondent Banking Relationships

    March 06, 2018

    FSB published updated data on correspondent banking relationships, using the data provided by SWIFT. The data is published as part of the action plan of FSB to assess and address the decline in correspondent banking relationships. Additionally, BCBS, CPMI, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and FSB published a statement welcoming the Correspondent Banking Due Diligence Questionnaire by the Wolfsberg Group as one of the industry initiatives that will help to address the decline in the number of correspondent banking relationships by facilitating due diligence processes.

    The report finds that reduction in the total number of active correspondents, as measured by the number of banks that have sent or received messages, continued in the first half of 2017. While there may be some seasonality in the changes in the latest six months, the number of active correspondents in June 2017 is also lower than in June 2016. There are regional variations in the figures. The twelve-month rates of change between June 2016 and June 2017 appear to confirm increases in the average number of active corridors per country (that is, of direct relationships with other countries, measured by the flow of SWIFT messages) for North America and Eastern Europe and slower declines than in June 2015 to June 2016 in Africa and Oceania. However, the rate of decline between June 2016 and June 2017 increased in the Americas (excluding North America), Asia, and Europe (excluding Eastern Europe) compared with the change from June 2015 to June 2016.

    In line with previous analysis by the CPMI and FSB Correspondent Banking Data Report of July 2017, data continues to show that, at the global level, the decline in the number of active correspondents has not resulted in a lower number of payment messages (volume) or a lower underlying value of the messages processed through SWIFT. A fuller analysis, including methodological enhancements, will be published by mid-2018, based on end-2017 data.
