COOS BAY Independent Financial Network, formerly known as Security Bank Holding Co., announced the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, Alliance Technology Inc.

The subsidiary is to be an affordable, flexible and reliable one-stop technology-outsourcing store for financial institutions, said Naseer Nasim, chief executive officer of the new subsidiary.

Nasim was the chief information officer for Independent Financial Network.

Alliance Technology Inc. has been providing data processing and item processing using ITI/Unisys platform, as well as network, data communication, Internet and e-commerce services to Independent Financial Netword and its affiliate banks and mortgage companies in Oregon including Security Bank, Pacific State Bank, Lincoln Security Bank, Family Security Bank, McKenzie State Bank, Oregon State Bank, Roseburg Community Banking Co., Security Mortgage and American Security Mortgage.

The subsidiary now plans to market its services to non-affiliated financial institutions in the West, and is licensed to do business in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Nevada.

It also plans to provide full Internet banking, bill payment and other e-commerce solutions for the Independent Financial Network banks and other nonaffiliated financial institutions this year.

The IFN Technology Department had excess item and data processing capacity, and it only made sense to leverage that capacity to provide technology services to non-affiliated financial institutions and to provide added profits for IFN shareholders, said Chuck Brummel, Independent Financial Network chairman and chief executive officer.

Other financial institutions will now have a viable source of cost-effective solutions to their technology services needs, Brummel said.

He said that Nasim was hired last year specifically to form this for-profit subsidiary.

Naseer brought with him, not only his own extensive academic and experiential background in technology, but also attracted some of his prior colleagues with extensive experience in technology to join the new company. Brummel said.

For information about Alliance Technology, call Nasim at (541) 267-5356 or visit its website at http://www.alliance-tech.net.

  • Asian stocks dip, euro stuck near one-year lows
    The index managed to carve out gains on Monday, brushing aside the Ukraine crisis and a downbeat China manufacturing survey. The common currency was expected to remain under pressure ahead of Thursday's European Central Bank policy meeting. While many market participants do not expect the ECB to take major easing steps this week, a few are seen braced for new policy measures with further central bank easing considered a matter of when and not if in the face of risks to euro zone growth posed by the Ukraine conflict and stubbornly low inflation. "This week may start to mark the biggest shift in global monetary policy since 'Abenomics' went into full steam on the appointment of Haruhiko Kuroda to head up the BOJ," equity strategists at Jefferies wrote in a note to clients.
  • China's Li Ning stumbles from gold medal position to no man's land
    In 2010, former Chinese gymnast Li Ning led a surging $4 billion sportswear business, a gold-medal pinnacle echoing his victories at the 1984 Olympic Games. Now, the Li Ning (2331.HK) business is more reminiscent of the ex-sportsman's exit from the 1988 Olympics without a podium finish. As customers have turned to aspirational global brands like Nike Inc (NKE.N) or cheaper local firms, Li Ning has racked up heavy losses, losing four-fifths of its market value.
  • Hollande, Draghi agree on threat of deflation: official
    French President Francois Hollande and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi agreed on Monday that deflation and weak growth were threatening the European Union's economy, an official in the president's office said. Draghi called last week for greater emphasis on fiscal stimulus over austerity - comments that irritated German leaders but were welcomed in France because they hinted at a shift away from a current emphasis on budgetary austerity. "I think the diagnosis is a shared one," an advisor to Hollande told reporters after an hour-long meeting between the Socialist president and Draghi at the Elysee presidential palace. The two men shared the view that weak growth and a threat of deflation in the European Union were problems that needed to be addressed, the advisor added.
