Home Trust Teams Up With MasterCard Canada

TORONTO, Nov. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Home Trust Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX: HCG) and one of Canada's leading trust companies, has teamed up with MasterCard Canada to grow Home Trust's payment card services and merchant acquiring portfolio.

Home Trust will expand its payment card portfolio through the development of a prepaid card business with MasterCard. Home Trust selected MasterCard to help develop its prepaid card portfolio because of MasterCard's proven track record and widely accepted suite of products that are popular with Canadian consumers.

(PSiGate), a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Capital Group. PSiGate offers secure, cost-effective and trusted solutions to small and mid-size merchants.

"We are excited by the opportunity to deliver the MasterCard brand to Home Trust customers," said Gerald M. Soloway, Chief Executive Officer, Home Trust. "By expanding our credit card services to include MasterCard, we are further diversifying our business and providing our customers with flexible solutions to meet their credit card needs. We look forward to building and developing our relationship with MasterCard."

"Prepaid is an important product for MasterCard and we're looking forward to working with Home Trust to grow the reach of prepaid in both the commercial and consumer spaces," said David E. Orzel, Senior Vice President, Market Development, MasterCard Canada.
