Bank Wire Transfers
Bank wire transfers are often the most efficient method for transferring funds between bank accounts. A bank wire transfer is effected as follows:
The sending bank transmits a message, via a secure system (such as SWIFT or Fedwire), to the receiving bank, requesting that it effect payment according to the instructions given.
The message also includes settlement instructions. The actual transfer is not instantaneous: funds may take several hours to move from the sender's account to the receiver's account.
Either the banks involved must hold a reciprocal account with each other, or the payment must be sent to a bank with such an account, a correspondent bank, for further benefit to the ultimate recipient.
