Historical Overview


InfoLink Services Limited (ISL) was incorporated on the September 13, 1994. As a joint venture between the four major financial institutions in Trinidad & Tobago, ISL was created initially to provide a local debit card switching infrastructure with the vision for providing further co-operative financial service initiatives in the future.

The visionaries of ISL knew that “a shared financial infrastructure would not lessen or eliminate competition. Rather, it would create and make possible in the future many new avenues for the provision of new services, improved customer service and reduced transaction processing costs.” ISL, under the LINX® brand, switched its first transaction on September 4, 1995. We started with ATM-sharing transactions and, by November 1996, ISL was switching Debit Point-of-Sale (POS) transactions also.
