Doug Eyles, head of investments at Trust Company of Illinois, said, “After a brief trial period, we decided that XCA could help us to better track developments that might impact our client’s portfolios.” This follows Brotherhood Bank & Trust (BB&T)’s decision to implement the same web-based service announced earlier in the month.

Another 70 firms are said to be trialling the service.
