The Case for ISO 20022
Major central banks are set to switch their payments systems to ISO 20022 by 2025, bringing much-needed standardisation to the global payments infrastructure.
Earlier this month The Banker sat down with Saqib Sheikh, SWIFT’s global head of ISO 20022 programme, to outline why the migration to ISO 20022 is so important for the banking industry.

This will enable enhanced compliance procedures, increased interoperability and efficiency and improved customer service.
