SPF and CFS Launch Mobile Scanning Application to Increase Efficiencies for Advisors

Investment in mobile technology continues tradition of technology leadership

SAN DIEGO Nov. 5, 2013 – Sister companies,  CUSO Financial Services, L.P. (CFS) and Sorrento Pacific Financial, LLC (SPF), full-service broker dealers and SEC Registered Investment
Advisers providing customized investment and insurance solutions to financial institutions, have
released a new mobile scanning application for advisors to use out in the field to increase their
efficiencies. The application securely captures documentation and meets with regulatory compliance

The free application is downloadable from the Apple App Store now for any iOS user, including
iPad®, iPod® and iPhone® devices. A version for Android® devices is in beta testing and will be
available later this year. It allows an advisor to snap a photo of a client’s documentation for
investments, securely captures it and uploads it automatically into dataVISION, a proprietary,
secure electronic, web-based account management system used by the companies’ advisors to simplify
administration, communications, sales, and reporting functions.

Senior Vice President for Business Systems Mitzi McMilllin says, “This investment in the mobile
space continues our companies’ traditions of technology leadership for investment programs inside
financial institutions. The new scanning app directly supports our customers’ mobile strategies. We
continually look for new ways that technology can create efficiencies and make our financial
advisors’ workflow easier so they can spend more time with clients. With everyone so mobile now,
this is a clearly practical solution.”

The app can be allowed or disallowed by user and can be installed on multiple devices by an
individual advisor. SPF and CFS are offering training on the application via live and online
modules and/or will train a financial institution’s trainer.

Najib A. Khan, an investment representative with ABNB Federal Credit Union, says, “I have recently
started using it and so far the app is phenomenal. Kudos to SPF and CFS for implementing this
technology. It makes it easy for an advisor like me that has to cover multiple locations. I’ve
already used it to open new accounts and I love it.”

If any client investment programs are interested in training their representatives to use this new
feature, please contact Mitzi McMillin at mmcmillin@cusonet.com or 858-530-4470 to arrange
for a demonstration. Banks and Credit unions interested in knowing more about the flexible
program models the sister companies provide for investment services can call SPF at
