Bank Codes

SWIFT, BRSTN and CHIPS in Philippine Banks

There are THREE common bank identifying codes used internationally, and these are:

BRSTN: Bank Routing Symbol Transit Numbers for Major Banks in the Philippines

This 9 digit code identifies the country, city, and name of your bank, and is the commonly used bank identifier code used among banks in the Philippines to transfer funds.

SWIFT: Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. Business Identifier Codes (BICs) are often called SWIFT addresses or codes.

The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 characters, made up of:
4 letters: Institution Code or bank code.
2 letters: ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code
2 letters or digits: location code
The last 3 characters represent the branch code.

CHIPS: Clearing House Interbank Payments System  http://www.chips.org


Although these are listed below, it is always advised to contact your bank to check the code before using it to transfer funds.
A wrong, or outdated, code could cause problems with your financial transactions. Trust ONLY your bank.

Some banks use a routing number of another bank that they route transfers through. For example BRSTN: 021000021 is actually JP Morgan Chase in New York, but used for at least BPI Family Bank and PSBank.
