Our growing team supports them from our German service centre with powerful software solutions and the related services.

What we do

Go digital

Give your clients what they want – new web and mobile services and a great user experience. You do the creative stuff. We integrate and orchestrate. And, thanks to SaaS, digital banking and digital wealth management all work beautifully.

Boost efficiency

Running our own core banking software as a service in our service centres has taught us the dark secrets of efficient, industrial-grade operation. Together, automation, standardization and economies of scale can cut your IT costs by 30%.

Be agile

Are you ready for new markets, new products, M&A, even different business models? Stay light on your feet. Agility pays off. That’s why banks using Avaloq’s core banking software report ROE ratios 2.7% higher than the rest.

Ensure compliance

Compliance hurts. Jumping through the hoops takes up to 50% of some banks’ IT spend. We’ve got a better way. Removing complexity with our integrated regtech solutions and sharing costs across our user community will bring you major savings.
