Actually, YES. BDO has many swift codes.
How many swift codes?
Currently, it has five (5) swift codes.
So, you're now starting to confuse which swift code of BDO you should use.
Here's a simple guide in making the right decision on which BDO swift code you should use.
First let me show you the list of BDO swift codes:
- BNORPHMM - for BDO UNIBANK, INC., the parent company, with main office in Manila, Philippines.
- BDESPHM1 - for BDO ELITE SAVINGS BANK, INC., with main office in Taguig City, Philippines
- BDSCPHM1 - for BDO SECURITIES CORPORATION with main office in Makati City, Philippines.
- BNSCPHM1 - for BDO NOMURA SECURITIES, INC. with main office in Makati City, Philippines
- BOPBHMM - for BDO PRIVATE BANK INC. with main office in Manila, Philippines
If you're transferring money to an ordinary BDO Savings/Credit/Checking Account in any BDO branch in the Philippines, then you're going to use the BNORPHMM swift code. It's the swift code of the BDO Unibank, Inc., the parent company. I used this BDO swift code every time I transfer money from abroad into the Philippines. And most BDO customers use this too.
BDO Elite Savings Bank, BDO Securities Corp., BDO Nomura Securities and BDO Private are all under the parent company BDO Unibank, Inc. (the ultimate parent company). You should not use their swift codes if you're not registered with these subsidiaries or sub-companies of BDO Unibank.
