Surecomp is pleased to announce that Beverly Hills-based City National Bank recently became the first US-based IBSnet customer to go live with IBSnet and NetIMEX.
City National licensed IBSnet, Surecomp's SWIFT Ready Gold label Trade Finance application in 1996. In 2002, City National Bank became the 24th financial institution to license NetIMEX, Surecomp's highly acclaimed NetIMEX Internet-based Trade Finance Front-end solution since its release in 1999.
Established nearly 50 years ago, City National offers a unique brand of relationship banking to a focused market of affluent entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals and investors. It is the second largest independent bank headquartered in California, with 54 offices, including 12 regional centers, located in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. For the past two years, Barron's Business and Financial Weekly has recognized City National in its annual survey of America's top 40 wealth managers.
Commenting on going live with IBSnet and NetIMEX, Stewart Ekelund, City National’s International Operations Manager said, "City National offers one of the most experienced teams of international trade professionals, who serve our clients with a wide range of trade financing, foreign exchange, and currency management services. Our clients, including some of the region's fastest-growing businesses, rely on us for innovative solutions to all of their financial needs. IBSnet and NetIMEX help us offer superior trade finance services and deliver on our promises to our clients."
Ekelund added, "The installation of NetIMEX went extremely well in all respects. I was delighted with Surecomp's speed and professionalism."
James Black, Surecomp Vice President added, "Surecomp is committed to total satisfaction through strong installation, implementation and training programs, which allows our customers to keep their pledge to deliver the very best service to their customers."
