Short Take: Canadian bank buys Net bank

Royal Bank of Canada will acquire the first Internet-only bank, Security First Network Bank, for $20 million upon closing its proposed deal in June. The Canadian bank said the acquisition is a first step in establishing a retail banking presence in the United States. The sale will allow Security First Technologies, an SFNB division that sells banks software for online banking, to focus on its software business.
