- How do I send a wire transfer?
- To initiate wire transfers with RBC Bank, we need you to first sign a Wire Transfer Agreement. Follow the instructions on the document to complete and submit. Once we receive this one-time agreement, you may initiate domestic or international wires with us. To do so, please call 1-800-769-2553 and be prepared to provide the following information:
- Beneficiary bank name and address:
This is the bank where the person or business to whom you want to send a wire transfer holds their account.
- Receiving/beneficiary bank name and ABA Routing Number or Swift Code:
Depending on the processing procedures of the receiving/beneficiary bank, both the ABA Routing Number and Swift Code may be required.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many banks use an intermediary or "receiving" bank to facilitate their wire transfers (Example: RBC Bank uses JPMorgan Chase to process wires). If that is the case with the wire transfer you wish to send, please be sure to provide the receiving bank's ABA Routing Number or Swift Code. Do not use the final beneficiary's bank information as that may create a significant delay in processing.
- Beneficiary name and account number
The full name of the person or business to whom you are sending the wire and the account number where the funds are to be sent.
- How can I receive a wire transfer?
