Portfolio Plus SEPA Functionality

Portfolio+ Inc. Releases SEPA Functionality for Banks and Non-Banking Institutions

Toronto, ON, Canada – February 17, 2014: Portfolio+ Inc. is pleased to announce that Single Euro Payments Area (“SEPA”) functionality is available for financial institutions and non-financial institutions using Portfolio Plus.

“We’re committed to global expansion of our business, and SEPA functionality is a demonstration of that commitment,” said G. Robert Leeming, President of Portfolio+ Inc. “We’ve created a comprehensive solution for banks and other non-banking institutions to comply with the SEPA requirements.”

SEPA is a payment integration initiative of the European Union (EU) for the simplification of bank transfers denominated in euros. As of February 2014, SEPA consists of the 28 EU member states, the four members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), Monaco, and San Marino.

By February 2016, consumers must drop Business Identifier Code (BIC) sorting information for SEPA transactions, since it will be derived from the International Bank Account Number (IBAN) for all banks in the SEPA area.
