Metrobank Correspondent Banks/ Intermediary Banks

If there is one recurring theme in this blog, you would notice that it is my dislike of the remittance services of BPI. Come to think of it, dislike is too cute a word for what I feel for BPI. I hate, abhor, abominate, despise, detest, loathe BPI. Take that damn thesaurus away from me.

I am using a Metrobank savings account right now (courtesy of my mom). If you are doing freelancing work for companies based in the U.S. and have a Metrobank savings account and would like to use it, you might find information in this post this useful. The SWIFT/BIC code for Metrobank is MBTCPHMM.

For those of you who are wondering if Metrobank has correspondent banks or intermediary banks in the U.S., wonder no more. I found the list of such banks in their website, and I took the liberty of posting it here, so whoever Googles the info and lands here may thank me dearly for it. Haha! Anyway, here's the list of Metrobank's correspondent/intermediary banks in the U.S.:

AMERICAN EXPRESS BANK
BANK OF AMERICA
BANK OF HAWAII
BANK OF NEW YORK
CITIBANK
COMERICA BANK
FIRST BANK
HABIB AMERICAN BANK
HARRIS TRUST & SAVINGS BANK
HSBC BANK USA NA
HUNTINGTON NATL BANK
JPMORGAN CHASE & CO.
KEY BANK OF NEW YORK NA
LASALLE NATIONAL BANK
MELLON BANK N.A
NATIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK
NATIONAL BANK OF DETROIT
NATIONAL CITY BANK
PNC BANK NA
U.S. BANK
UNION BANK OF CALIFORNIA
WACHOVIA BANK
WELLS FARGO BANK N.A.

Oh wow. I think I just posted my first ever useful post. Anyway, I hope I can start posting more useful things here for Filipino WAHMs or WAHDs in the future. I am losing ideas for useless posts to write anyway. Tee hee. Comment if you find anything amiss here, or if you want to ask stuff. Just don't ask what the SWIFT/BIC code for BPI is, or what BPI's correspondent/intermediary banks are, if you don't like me inflicting physical pain on you.

Hello Kaye,

Am commenting not on Metrobank but I share your feelings for BPI... I know that chances of our lost money reaching us is very slim and I have given up already. Have you received yours?

when i was in pinas, i had UCPB for my payroll account and PNB for my savings account...

this is a very helpful post esp for those who have metrobank accounts in pinas and want to deposit their hard-earned dollars. with correspondent banks, the service fees are very minimal at you can trust that your money will arrive when you expect it to arrive.
