A wire transfer is an electronic method of transferring money from one account to another.

Wire transfers are typically used when you need to send/receive funds in a short period of time. Wire transfers are quick, reliable, and secure.

For detailed information on how to initiate a domestic or international wire transfer, you should visit or call your local East West Bank branch. Our experienced bankers welcome the opportunity to assist you.

For international wire transfers, the beneficiary will generally receive the funds within 2 – 5 business days. Please note, delivery timeframes for wire transfers can differ for various reasons, such as delays due to the delivery country or incomplete wire transfer instructions. For consumer international wire transfers and remittances, additional information regarding the delivery date will be provided at the time the international wire transfer or remittance is initiated.
