Following the roll-out of a new IT platform for Finter Bank Zürich in Switzerland and on Nassau within 2009 and 2010, an eBanking system was evaluated and introduced in 2011 that would provide clients with all the advantages of access on demand to customer and account information including authorization for all relevant transactions.
