Zürcher Kantonalbank extends Sword FircoSoft solution to filter Swiss transactions

Paris - 29 March 2011

Sword FircoSoft, the leading global provider of watch list filtering solutions today announces that Zürcher Kantonalbank (Switzerland) extends Sword FircoSoft’s Firco Continuity solution for the filtering of their Swiss transactions.

Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), the largest cantonal bank and the leading universal bank in the Zurich region, adds the filtering of intra-Switzerland transactions to their filtering process with the best-of-breed Firco Continuity solution. Firco Continuity already allows ZKB to filter their SWIFT transactions processed within SWIFT Alliance Access in order to automatically block the transactions involving parties listed on sanctions lists they use. For this new need, Sword FircoSoft has built a centralized platform to include the filtering of their national transactions and their SWIFT transactions processed out of SWIFT Alliance Access.
