Prudent Regulation and Supervision
Regulated under the Federal Bank Act and supervised by Canada’s primary banking regulators: the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) and the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC). EBC is also a member of Payments Canada and the Canadian Bankers’ Association.

International Cash Services
We are one of two banks domiciled outside of the United States participating in the FRBNY’s prestigious Foreign Bank International Cash Services (FBICS) program.

Experience
We are industry veterans with 25+ years in delivering comprehensive, cost-effective, and trusted wholesale banknote and foreign currency exchange solutions.

Risk Mitigation Through Diversification
Banknotes providers are consolidating or exiting the industry altogether, and service to markets deemed non-core to traditional providers becomes uncertain. EBC can mitigate vendor diversification risk by being an alternative provider of banknote services.

Global Coverage
We partner with the top global cash-in-transit providers to ensure your banknotes are secure and transferred efficiently, with multiple relationships per corridor.

Customer First
We provide customers with an exceptional level of support. Our NPS score of 85 is a testament to the hard work of our employees and their dedication to excellence.
