TORONTO, August 16, 2017 – BMO Private Banking today announced that it is offering its Canadian clients – high-net worth individuals and families – free access to over 40,000 Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) across the United States and Puerto Rico as part of a partnership with Allpoint, the world’s largest surcharge-free ATM network.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide our clients with cross-border ATM access at no charge,” said John Turner, Director Banking, Deposits and Payments, BMO Private Banking. “Many of our clients spend a great deal of time in the U.S. – whether it is living there for the winter, a vacation or visiting their children who attend American post-secondary institutions – and want simple and cost effective cross-border banking solutions. Over 25 per cent of BMO Private Banking households make a withdrawal at a U.S. based ATM. This offer is another big step forward in meeting that need.”
Mr. Turner added that today’s announcement is a strong addition to BMO Private Banking’s all-inclusive Platinum Banking plan, a comprehensive package of banking services that includes a dedicated private banker.
“BMO is the first Canadian bank to use the Allpoint ATM network to offer its customers convenient, cross-border cash access when traveling to the U.S. and Puerto Rico,” said Brian Bailey, Managing Director – North America, Cardtronics. “We are honored to help make cash access convenient and easy for BMO Private Banking clients.”
BMO Private Banking clients can find the nearest participating fee-free ATMs in the U.S. – including BMO’s existing fleet of more than 1,300 ATMs – using the BMO Harris Bank online locator.
