Promontory Interfinancial Network Changes Its Name to IntraFi Network

The innovative fintech is adopting new names that better describe its suite of financial services — popular products that until now have included CDARS®, Insured Cash Sweep®, Insured Network Deposits®. Going forward, the company’s deposit products will be consolidated into IntraFiSM Network DepositsSM and its funding products will become IntraFi FundingSM. The new name recognizes the evolution over the past 18 years, from a small fintech providing a single service for less than 100 banks to a company offering an array of all-weather solutions to thousands of institutions. It’s a new name, but the same people, products and service to financial institutions like yours. Find out more by clicking HERE
