Settlement Methods

Settle your transactions via one of Olympia’s secure electronic settlement methods. Our EFT Team closely monitors each of our various accounts to ensure your settlement is received and reconciled as timely as possible. As soon as your settlement is reconciled, our payments team begins processing.

 

Bank Transfer

A bank transfer is a reliable method to transfer funds from your Canadian based account to one of ours (TD, CIBC, ATB, RBC, BMO and National Bank). This can be done at a branch with a teller, or depending on your banking relationship can be facilitated with your banking account manager.

To securely and efficiently reconcile your transfers, the bank must process the transfer per the directions on Olympia Trust’s transfer form. Returning the completed form to Olympia Trust notifies our team that your payment has been sent, and ensures that the funds are applied to your corresponding trust account.
