PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - Bottomline Technologies has announced that Royal Trust, the international custody arm of Royal Bank of Canada, has licensed its electronic banking software.

The service will be offered to Royal Trust's custody clients, including corporate and institutional fund managers, pension fund administrators, investment managers, broker-dealers, and insurance providers. These clients will have Web access to a range of custody and trust services available from Royal Trust's virtual private network.
Under terms of the agreement, Royal Trust will market its Web-based services under the ViewFinder brand. The deal will provide Royal Trust with a platform to introduce future e-commerce initiatives.
