Achieve speed, scale and greater impact

The Ecosystem –
bringing financial institutions and fintechs together

We’re helping financial institutions create their own solutions: either using Avaloq sandboxes and APIs or by integrating with fintech solutions available on the marketplace. Discover the easy way to collaborate and innovate – on one platform.

Take innovation to the next level

Innovation rarely occurs as an isolated process. At Avaloq, we aim to foster collaboration. That’s why we’re connecting banks to fintech partners, enabling you to enhance and complement your current capabilities. 
So that you can reduce time-to-market, benefit from ready-to-use sandboxes and APIs and take innovation to the next level.

Meet changing customer expectations with more than 100 solutions

Even the most innovative financial institutions can’t always keep up with new technologies. Luckily, the new era of open banking has unleashed a world of opportunities:
•    Co-innovation with fintechs and technology partners
•    Rapid introduction of new services and functionality
•    Fully integrated services and applications via appropriate third parties

We’re the leading integration partner for financial institutions

We take a user-centered approach.

Access to fintech investors

The Ecosystem provides access to fintech investors, including our own investment arm, Avaloq Ventures – with the funding to back promising innovations and nurture them from concepts to fully-fledged banking applications. We also offer banks and UHNW clients the possibility to buy into the fund as an alternative investment opportunity.

7,500 REST APIs. 400+ open APIs. APIs on-demand

Make use of our standardized REST APIs, designed to eliminate all the traditional hassles and complexities involved in integrating products from different fintech partners. And if the API is not there? Well, we’ll build, test and integrate it for you in weeks.

Want to start using open APIs?

For open APIs, you need to deploy the OpenShift Kubernetes platform as part of your core infrastructure. That’s because the fintech solutions are based on microservices and require the same infrastructure as future versions of the Avaloq Banking Suite (starting with version 4.9). We also offer other integrations so contact us and, together, we can find the right solution and technology for you.
