For eligible US clients, Signature Bank provides faster way to deposit or withdraw funds. Domestic (US bank to US bank) transfers are processed via Fedwire and take 1 to 5 hours to process during US banking hours. Banking cutoff time is 3pm EST.
For eligible International clients, Signature Bank provides an alternative to US-only USD funding options. International transfers are processed via SWIFT and may require more time to settle.
