Toronto, ON, Canada – October 16, 2013: Strategic Information Technology Ltd. ("SIT") is pleased to announce the general availability of the Clearing and Depository Services (CDS)/CANNEX/Portfolio Plus Interface that will facilitate the same day electronic net settlement of funds related to GIC purchases, maturities, redemptions, as well as interest and commission payments. "We’ve been working with SIT to test the same day net settlement of funds related to maturities, redemptions, interest, and commission payments," said Alex Melvin, President of CANNEX. "And I'm happy to say that SIT has extended this testing to Portfolio Plus and is now offering general availability of this enhancement."
SIT has been working with CANNEX and GIC/term deposit issuers since 1996 to continually improve the processing and administration of deposit products and has become the leading supplier in the industry.
"We've been aiming to work with CANNEX on the same day net settlement initiative for the last few years, and I'm happy to see our testing phase is now complete," said G. Robert Leeming, President of SIT. "With these efficiencies in place we've seen examples where billions of dollars' worth of nominee name and client name term deposits can be managed by one or two people."
SIT customers who wish to implement the enhancements required for same day net settlement should talk to their SIT relationship manager.
