Toronto, ON, Canada – September 15, 2009: Strategic Information Technology Limited (“SIT”) is pleased to announce that CommunityLend has taken another step forward towards opening the doors to operate a peer-to-peer lending business in Canada and has now been registered as a "limited market dealer" in Ontario.
“We’ve admired CommunityLend’s efforts to pioneer a new financial services market in Canada and we’ll be there to support their launch and subsequent growth”, said G. Robert Leeming, President of SIT.
CommunityLend’s peer to peer banking platform is powered by a unique combination of open source technologies and SIT’s Portfolio Plus banking software platform. The SIT Open Banking InterfaceTM is the messaging conduit between the open source technologies and Portfolio Plus.
CommunityLend is a unique social lending service launching in Canada in 2009. CommunityLend will join the social-banking revolution currently underway around the world which Javelin Research predicts will be “a game changing development in financial services interactions.”
More regulatory information about CommunityLend can be found on the Ontario Securities Commission website.
SIT, formed in 1988, develops and markets Portfolio Plus, an extensible banking system that enables customers to plug-in new functionality as required. This is accomplished via SIT's unique Plug-In BankingTM architecture and a Financial Services BusTM that extends Portfolio Plus functionality to other corporate applications. SIT's banking software enables credit unions, banks, trust companies and building societies to offer web banking, loans, loan securitization, investments, term deposits, wealth management, retail, ATM/POS switch interfaces for debit cards, leasing, and credit bureau interfaces. Portfolio Plus can also be tailored, on request, to meet specific customer requirements.
