Toronto, Canada – December 11, 2006: Strategic Information Technology Limited (“SIT”) is pleased to announce that Community Trust, located in Toronto, Ontario, has selected Portfolio Plus to replace their current environment and address their future growth initiatives.
“Portfolio Plus has become the most popular banking platform choice for independent Canadian trust companies”, stated Lu Kozak, Chairman of Community Trust, “but this isn’t what drove our decision. It was important for us to conduct a thorough due diligence to make sure that both the software and the vendor would meet our needs. We are confident that SIT can satisfy these requirements and thus ensure a productive partnership. We especially liked the software’s flexibility and plug-in banking architecture which will allow us to add functionality to meet our future needs.”

We look forward to supporting their growth objectives every step of the way”, says G. Robert Leeming, CEO of SIT. “Our partnership underlines the commitment we have to community banking and trust company banking overall.”
Within the Canadian independent trust company market, SIT’s Portfolio Plus banking platform enjoys the highest market share of any banking software vendor.
