Ecobank Nigeria is a member of the Ecobank Transnational Incorporation (ETI), one of the foremost Pan-African bank with presence in over 36 countries in Africa and major financial cities of the world. 

Swift Code, also known as Bank Identification Code (BIC) is needed for transfers across borders. This serves as destination locator for incoming funds from another country and ensures the money hits the right account (beneficiary's account). 

As an Ecobank customer who always receive payment from international customers or family members who live abroad, you will need to provide your sender with the Swift Code above and your bank details. 

The Swift Code is an eight character code with the first four character representing the short form of your bank's name. In the case of Ecobank - ECOC. The ECO is understood but why the inclusion of "C"? 

Ecobank Transnational Incorporation (ETI), as I earlier mentioned has presence in more than 36 African countries. The inclusion of C on the Swift Code after the first three characters (ECO) is simply a letter to differentiate Ecobank Nigeria from other affiliates e.g. Ecobank Ghana.

The next two character i.e. the fifth and sixth character (NG) denotes the country the bank operates in which is Nigeria while the last two characters represents the city your bank is located. For Ecobank Nigeria, the headquarter is situated at the heart of Lagos city (Victoria Island).
