Change is a given in the financial industry today and it’s happening faster all the time. Global events are eradicating ‘business as usual’. New players, from fintech startups to global tech giants, are impacting the market, while a new generation of digital natives creates specific demands. Emerging technologies are opening the door to completely new business models, all while regulations are tightening and margins are being squeezed by legacy IT systems. And that’s only the beginning.
All of this change is creating exciting opportunities for financial institutions and wealth managers, but you need to act quickly to embrace it, or it may be too late.

Our strategic pillars
Whatever your business strategy, these pillars can support your journey into the new era.
Provide Wealth management to the many - not the few
Streamlining the client journey
To excel in the fast-paced financial world, it is key for wealth managers to improve the client experience. Avaloq enables financial institutions to meet changing consumer expectations in the digital age.
Sustainable and environmental, societal and governance (ESG) investments has seen a steep rise in demand. With an Investment Suitability Framework, Avaloq is making the ESG aspects an integral factor in wealth management.
Make derivatives and structured products available to a greater audience – not reserved for sophisticated, institutional investors. Avaloq has acquired Derivatives Partners - making it possible to offer derivatives to any client, using any banking system.
Creating excellent experience lets you attract, engage, and delight clients
Build strong client engagement
In our modern world, new technologies change how we interact with each other every day and clients expect 24/7 easy access to financial services. At Avaloq, we help deliver personalized services and drive strong client engagement whenever, wherever.
How to take a design-driven approach to the client experience
Our lives are no longer a series of single offline actions – they are a collection of digital experiences. We believe a design-driven mindset and taking a design-driven approach to digital services is a proven way to provide an excellent digital experience.
Moving to the cloud is no longer a question of “if” but “when” – and “how”
The future of cloud
There is no doubt now that core banking platforms will eventually move to the cloud. The question is not if or when, but how? At Avaloq, we see a clear pathway to cloud adoption and continuously strive to help meet our clients demand to move services to cloud.
Financial institutions and wealth managers are under pressure to improve operational efficiency. At Avaloq, we believe it’s time to move to cloud. With the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, standardization along with automation reduces the burden on clients.
Where can financial institutions and wealth managers stand out from their competitors? At Avaloq, we focus on new ways to ensure great and consistent client services – a stable and robust platform for Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) can enable this.
Artificial Intelligence is the next disruptor in the financial sector. With useful insights, data science solutions, and predictive power, Avaloq enables financial institutions to use data analytics insights to make better decisions for their clients.
Crypto currencies are here to stay. A stabilized wider crypto sector means soon, more assets will be tokenized and made bankable. At Avaloq, our vision is to accelerate crypto asset integration into reliable and efficient crypto technology and solutions.
Financial institutions feel the pressure of competitors selecting the most profitable services and clients. Avaloq believes the shift to Open banking and our Avaloq.one Ecosystem lets you achieve the speed, scale, and impact to stay ahead of the competition.
Compliance fundamentally changes the financial services experience
The finance industry needs to understand and adapt to the paradigm shift caused by ever-changing regulations. Avaloq believes that a trusted network for compliance affairs lets financial institutions become and remain compliant in both front and back-offices.
