Avaloq has doubled the size of its London office to cater for strong growth in the UK driven by demand for its Software as a Service (SaaS) and Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) solutions among UK private banks and wealth managers.

“London is not only one of the world’s major financial centres, it is also a leading fintech hub and we are intent on growing our UK business. The London team works closely with our development centre in Edinburgh, with the London office focused on sales and implementation, and this drive
