RTGS: The Standard for Interbank Payments

The first real-time gross settlement (RTGS) system revolutionized interbank payments around the world in the 1980s and continues to set new standards today.

From securities trading, salary payments and bank credit transfers to credit card payments, every transaction made in Swiss franc passes through the SIC system monitored by the Swiss National Bank.
