  • Mass payment and collection services are generally available, but there is only limited availability of multilateral netting and payment card services

  • Nine banks have an online investment portal, five offering other financial institutions’ investment products as well as their own

  • Most of the banks provide automated sweeps into money market funds, PNC offering access to the highest number at 40

  • All but one of the banks provide ICM services in other regions

  • Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank of Canada are the only banks offering 24/7 customer service support in the region.
