Funding methods

Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA):  

SEPA is a payment-integration initiative of the European Union and is used for sending cross-border Euro deposits and withdrawals between banks that are part of the SEPA network. 
  • Our Bank Frick SEPA account must be used for EUR transactions. Sending any other currency will result in the final deposited funds being converted to EUR at Bank Frick’s internal forex rate, and the transfer will be processed via the SWIFT network.
  • Using a bank which does not participate in the SEPA credit transfer scheme will result in the transfer being processed via the SWIFT network.
  • In both instances you may incur additional banking fees which are beyond our control.

Swiss Interbank Clearing (SIC):

The primary eligible clients of the SIC system are Swiss banks and financial institutions based in Liechtenstein and is often referred to as a domestic transfer system. CHF deposits and withdrawals using the SIC system are processed in real-time between 07:00 and 15:00 UTC on banking days.
  • Our Bank Frick SIC account must be used for CHF transfers. Sending any other currency will result in the final deposited funds being converted to CHF at Bank Frick’s internal forex rate and the transfer will be processed via the SWIFT network.
  • Using a bank outside of Liechtenstein or Switzerland will result in the transfer being processed via the SWIFT network.
  • In both instances you may incur additional banking fees which are beyond our control.

Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT):

SWIFT is a global messaging network used to securely send and receive information, such as money transfer instructions, between banks and other financial institutions.
This funding method can be used for deposits and withdrawals in EUR, CHF, USD, GBP and CAD between most banks worldwide. Transfers should be sent in the same currency selected on the deposit page. Cross-currency transactions will be converted at Bank Frick’s internal forex rate and the deposit will be credited in the denominated currency of the Bank Frick account selected. You may also incur additional banking fees which are beyond our control. The SWIFT transaction costs outlined in our deposit and withdrawal options pages refer only to the fees charged by our funding provider Bank Frick. SWIFT transfers may be subject to additional charges and conversion fees beyond our control by intermediaries or your own bank.
