MCAN Financial Group Launches Direct-to-Client GICs Through Portfolio+’s API Integration

Portfolio+ Inc. (Portfolio+), a leading Canadian provider of financial services systems and technologies, proudly announces its collaboration with MCAN Financial Group (MCAN) in launching a new direct-to-client Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) channel powered by Portfolio+’s term deposit software, through its MCAN Wealth brand. The direct-to-client GICs are available today!

The Portfolio+ cloud-native core banking system, coupled with its robust application programming interface (API), played a pivotal role in MCAN’s initiative, launched in February 2024. Leveraging the Portfolio+’s term deposit system, MCAN seamlessly originates and manages GICs, while also harnessing the power of Portfolio+ APIs to innovate and enhance consumer experiences with direct-to-client GICs.

President and CEO of MCAN, Don Coulter, expressed enthusiasm about the new channel, stating, “The growth of MCAN Wealth and this direct-to-client channel represents our ongoing commitment to innovation and client-centric solutions. We believe in empowering individuals to invest in their financial future.”

MCAN Wealth offers a suite of GIC products tailored to meet the diverse financial goals of Canadians. Clients can benefit from competitive interest rates, ensuring steady growth in their investments. The platform is designed to be user-friendly, providing a seamless and convenient investment experience. MCAN Wealth’s GICs are eligible for CDIC insurance, providing investors with added security and peace of mind.

MCAN has seen an impressive response to the new channel. “We’re building brand awareness and generating a lot of demand through our multichannel approach to grow this line of business,” shared MCAN COO Avish Buck.

“We are happy to be a partner alongside MCAN to help them realize this strategic opportunity which will help them grow their client base,” said Dianne Cupples, CEO of Portfolio+ Inc. “With Portfolio+’s proven term deposit platform, MCAN was able to expand their offerings to a new target market and increase their overall deposit book of business by automating their workflows for selling and processing term deposits.”
